The Patagonia Youth Enrichment Center thanks the community for all their support. The Youth Center could NOT have adapted all of their services and continue to serve the community during the pandemic without the incredible generosity of donors 

Now that tax time is approaching, we also want to remind you that the Patagonia Youth Enrichment Center is a Qualified Charitable Organization under the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit Program. This means that individuals can receive a tax credit for up to $400 and taxpayers filing jointly can receive up to $800. If you haven’t already done so, now’s the time! Donations for the 2020 tax year can be made until April 15, 2021. 

People often ask “Can I make a tax credit-eligible donation to the youth center and one to the schools and receive tax credits for both?” The answer is YES! They are separate tax credit programs, so you can receive tax credits for your donations to both. 

Here’s how it works: you make a donation to the Patagonia Youth Enrichment Center (before you file your state income tax return, using the amount and date guidelines shown above); select the Patagonia Youth Enrichment Center from the list of Qualified Charitable Organizations; and you can include your tax credit amount on your return. 

You can make your donation by sending a check to the Patagonia Youth Enrichment Center; PO Box 843, Patagonia, AZ 85624 or going to our website and donating via Paypal.
