The backbone of SAWs are the many people who involve themselves in this ministry. Volunteers are essential but without the funds to purchase building materials and maintain our construction hubs we can do nothing.
Because SAWs constructs and installs ADA compliant ramps to low-income, permanently disabled persons for FREE, we depend on the generosity of individuals, churches, corporations and nonprofit organizations to support our efforts.
Individual contributions along with grants will make it possible to fund 50 RAMPS in 2022.
- Your gift of $350 buys a complete 8-foot ramp section!
- Your gift of $474 provides the decking for an average length of decking for a ramp.
- Your gift of $120 provides a crucial ramp transition plate.
- Your gift of $85 furnishes all the screws for an average ramp.
- Your gift of $1,500 furnishes all materials for an average size ramp system.
All individual contributions from Arizona taxpayers are eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. Single taxpayers can contribute up to $400 and couples filing jointly can contribute $800.
What is an Arizona Charitable Tax Credit?
If you’re an Arizona taxpayer, you can make a donation to SAWs and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit in return! But what does that mean?
IT MEANS at the end of the year, if you typically owe tax, you’ll owe less tax.
This is because a tax credit is different than a normal charitable deduction—rather than reduce your taxable income, it directly reduces your state tax liability (which is the tax you pay). For example, if your tax liability is $1,000, and you make a $750 donation to SAWs, your liability will be reduced by $750—meaning that your tax liability will only be $250! It is to your advantage to participate in this program.
In addition, you can make a donation all the way up until April 15 (your donation must be made prior to filing your taxes—if you are filing an extension your donation needs to be made by April 15), and still claim the credit for the previous tax year!
The best part? SAWs uses your tax credit donation to provide freedom to low-income, permanently disabled individuals through the construction of wheelchair ramps to the exterior of the homes.
What are you waiting for? More and more Arizona taxpayers have already joined us to make ramps for low-income disabled affordable.
Point the way for Arizonans to help make a difference.
