Virtual Fund Drive for St. Mary’s Food Bank
Your Phoenix PMI Chapter is taking action to help stamp out hunger and to give the gift of food to our local community by sponsoring a Virtual Fund Drive for the benefit of the St. Mary’s Food Bank. We are encouraging our members to help us in the effort during this holiday time of need by contributing any amount that you feel comfortable giving at https://fundraise.stmarysfoodbank.org/give/t390061/#!/donation/checkout.
Inflation has exacerbated the already dire situation with hunger in the State of Arizona where there are now 1 in 4 children living in poverty. Our PMI chapter has recognized the need to help address this situation by leveraging our partnership with St. Mary’s Food Bank to provide funds for this effort. Your contribution will be instrumental in maximizing St. Mary’s resources by providing enough food for 7 meals with every $1 donated. This means that your efforts will be multiplied by 7 and help stamp out hunger by feeding Arizona families.
Your charitable giving in 2021 may provide an extra tax deduction on your federal tax return or a credit on your State of Arizona income tax return. Arizona allows you to take a dollar-for-dollar Arizona Charitable Credit on your state tax return when you donate up to $400 for single filers or $800 for married couples filing jointly to a qualified organization. The tax credit was previously known as the Working Poor Tax Credit.
Thank you for helping to alleviate hunger in Arizona!
