$20,000 AZ Tax Credit Campaign to help those facing food insecurity: Nov. 27-Dec. 3

Every year on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe show up, give back and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day and touches every person on the planet.

Giving Tuesday weeklong campaign to help with food insecurity

This year, our Giving Tuesday Weeklong Campaign has one goal; help as many people with food insecurity in the East Valley as we can.  There are a lot of people needing our help right in our community.  (Did you know that about 75,000 people live below the poverty line just in Mesa?)  

Let’s all do what we can to help and we are here to make it easy for you. We’ll take care of food distribution, if you can help on the financial side.  In seven days, beginning Sunday, Nov. 27, our goal is to raise $20,000 through our Giving Tuesday campaign and your AZ Tax Credit.

As you may be aware, with your AZ Tax Credit you can take money directly off your AZ tax bill by donating up to $800 for a couple ($400/individual)  to the East Valley JCC Qualifying Charitable Organization.   

As a bonus we have a challenge grant of up to $20,000, so for every dollar you donate it is doubled!

Can we count on your help today with a donation to make a difference in people’s lives?

Tax credit funds provide meals to seniors and families in need and offer camp and preschool scholarships for families who otherwise would not be able to afford those experiences for their children. This year, funds raised through the Giving Tuesday weekly campaign will go toward those facing food insecurity. 

Our goal is to raise $20,000 by Dec. 3, 2022.
Please help us meet this goal!


How the AZ Tax Credit works

Donate Now

You make a donation to the EVJCC, up to $400 individual or $800 couple.

Get Credit

You take a dollar-for-dollar TAX CREDIT on your AZ income tax return.


The EVJCC continues to help those in our community in need and you’ve helped make that happen!

Donations to the EVJCC stay here in our community. The donations collected go toward programs for all age groups, to enrich the lives of people right here in our neighborhoods.

Help us reach our Tax Credit Goal of $150,000 by April 18, 2023. Let’s make this a reality!

Unlike other donations, this is not a deduction off your income. If you donate $800 you get $800 directly off your AZ State Income Tax Bill!

Provides meals

Through our JBox program, including the JBox Food Pantry, the EVJCC provides meals and food to poor or homebound seniors and children and families in need.

Helps the homeless

Programs help provide food, clothing and toiletries to homeless individuals and families in need.

Preschool and camp scholarships

Scholarships help families with financial challenges who want to send their children to preschool or camp.

Provides financial assistance

The EVJCC distributes money for qualified services through other Jewish agencies in Arizona that provide those services.
