Donate to Habitat for Humanity

Use Your  Arizona Tax Credit
The primary way that the Southeast Valley Lutheran Coalition raises money is donations from individual supporters through the Arizona tax credit program.  You may donate up to $800 for a joint return and $400 for a single return and receive a dollar for dollar tax credit. Itemizing on your state tax return is not required to claim the credit. The deadline for contributions is April 15, 2021. Contributors will receive a formal thank you letter from Habitat for Humanity, which serves as a donation receipt for tax purposes. The tax credit program works just like the school donation programs and you can do both.
