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!

Contact Fran Katz, Chief Development Officer at The J, ( or 520.299.3000 x102) with any donation questions and inquires about supporting the J.

Garden of Hope

Lady Bird Johnson said it so well, “Where there are flowers there is hope.” The garden promotes holistic wellness through creating a peaceful, colorful, and meditative outdoor environment while simultaneously celebrating the arts. Your support helps us maintain this community space so individuals can find the healing they are needing. Thank you for supporting our mission and sharing our values – we could not do this with you!

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.
