Giving to the Community Food Bank

What is the Arizona State Tax Credit?
Give to the Community Food Bank and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state return. You can now quality for up to $400 if you file as a single person, or up to $800 if you file jointly. Arizona’s charitable tax credit allows you to earn a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on contributions to qualified organizations. The State of Arizona recognizes the Community Food Bank and its branches as a Qualified Charitable Organization. All you have to do is make your gift before April 15th of the following year.

Please consult your tax professional for more detailed information.

Are there matching funds?
Gift matching is a great way to make your donation twice as effective. Several times throughout the year – but especially at yearend – we have donors who offer to match donations made to the Community Food Bank.

Many employers offer employee or retiree charitable gift matching as well. Please contact your employer’s HR office to see if they have a matching gift offer. You can also check for your employer’s programs using the search box below.

Do you accept non-monetary gifts?
The best non-monetary gift you can give us is food! We accept food donations at all of our branch locations, as well as at any current third-party hosted food drives. To make donations of assets such as cars, boats, RVs, jewelry, or other valuables, please contact our Major Gifts Officer.
