Creating Community in Tucson

Supporting the J

The J is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization who relies heavily on the support of the community to help provide the highest quality programs and services in a safe and secure environment for all people of all ages. Through community support we are able to provide more than $800,000 in scholarships each year for critical care services like early childhood education, summer camp, and special needs services, as well as provide our community with high-quality facilities and program content. By giving to the J you are helping meet the community’s needs through all we have to offer. Thank you in advance for your commitment to the J!

AZ Tax Credit

The Arizona Tax Credit program allows you to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state income taxes when you give to The J! Arizona allows you to take three types of tax credits, including one for organizations like ours. Through this tax credit program, money you would otherwise pay in taxes will benefit your neighbors right here in Southern Arizona.
