Tax Credit

Current Arizona tax code allows for charitable donations of up to $800 per married taxpayers filing jointly and up to $400 per taxpayer filing as single to be redirected to a qualifying charity and returned to the taxpayer not as a deduction but as a tax credit!

Taxpayers filing in Arizona have the unique opportunity to actually redirect a portion of the state tax dollars they already pay into charitable channels at no additional financial cost to themselves!

Open Door Fellowship Benevolence Fund is a qualified charitable organization under the state charitable tax credit program. 

For Taxpayers

  • You don’t need to itemize to take advantage of this credit!
  • The credit allowed for married taxpayers is $800
  • For single taxpayers the allowed credit is $400

Donors who use this tax credit may also qualify for other Arizona tax credit programs. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization making donations eligible for appropriate tax deductions on state and federal taxes. The Qualifying Charitable Organization Code for ODF is 20568.
