GRAHAM/GREENLEE COUNTIES – The Graham Greenlee Tax Credit Coalition is a collaboration of local nonprofits and local schools promoting the dollar-for-dollar Arizona income tax credit given to people who donate to qualified organizations and schools.  The nonprofits in the coalition are comprised of hardworking businesses that provide immediate basic needs to local people who have low-income families or children in need. This year’s members are the Boys and Girls Club of the Gila Valley, Duncan and Clifton Food Banks, Graham County Rehabilitation Center, Neighbors Farm & Pantry, SEACUS, and Tooth B.U.D.D.S.  

You can receive this dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state income tax return and keep your dollars local. Local schools are also part of this awareness campaign. Your gift goes to work right away in your community, providing support to the eligible organizations and schools of your choice. Donations made now through April 15 qualify for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on taxes owed in 2022 Arizona state income tax returns. For more information about the coalition, please visit our website at or the Facebook page at
