Opportunity4Kids Is Proud to Participate in Arizona Gives Day, April 4, 2017
[PHOENIX, ARIZONA], [3/22/17] — Opportunity4Kids will be joining Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from all over the state on Tuesday, April 4, to raise much-needed funds. Through azgives.org, Arizonans will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for exactly 24 hours of virtual giving to strive for additional cash incentive prizes. Sponsored by FirstBank, this 5th annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state.
“Arizona Gives Day is the perfect time for our community to come together and support the amazing nonprofits making an impact in Arizona,” says Alexandra Munter, Director of Operations, Opportunity4Kids.
In its third year of participation, Opportunity4Kids is excited to spread the word about how local supporters can easily make a difference for Arizona youth in need.
“The average scholarship awarded ranges from $200-$250 per season or activity. With one activity, we are seeing that children experience a boost in self-esteem and social skills. A little goes a long way!” says Munter.
Not only are donations to Opportunity4Kids federally tax deductible, but in the state of Arizona, donations of up to $400 for single filers and $800 for joint filers also qualify for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit- giving donors even more bang for their buck.
From 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 4, supporters of Opportunity4Kids can go to azgives.org and select Opportunity4Kids to make a direct contribution. These donations are crucial to helping fund our local efforts throughout the year.
Opportunity4Kids is organized to change the lives of children; to foster out-of-school time and extracurricular participation; to promote healthy and active lifestyles; to further mental and social development; and allow equal opportunities for all children. By providing financial assistance, equipment and uniforms to underprivileged youth, Opportunity4Kids levels the playing field and helps everyone participate.
