Donations are the fuel that powers ICS’s ability to help those less fortunate in our community. With more people than ever before turning to ICS, your support is vitally important. Over half of ICS operating revenues comes from individual donations. Your gift will help keep the lights on and the doors open so ICS can continue to provide compassionate assistance to the thousands who rely on us.
There are a variety of ways to make financial gifts to ICS. Cash donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
“My husband and I got involved with ICS years ago through our church. We continue to be impressed with how well the organization manages its finances and makes the most of its resources to help those in need.” — Dan and Helen
You can make a credit card donation over the phone by calling us at (520) 526-9292
You may mail us a check or money order, made payable to Interfaith Community Services, or drop it off at our office at 2820 W. Ina Road, Tucson, AZ 85741
Donors to ICS may claim a credit on their Arizona state income tax returns. Since we help the working poor, individual donors may claim a dollar-for-dollar tax credit of as much as $400 and couples filing jointly can receive a credit of as much as $800. Your donation reduces your tax liability and may mean that your donation costs you nothing!
A great way to honor or remember a family member, friend, or someone else who has been special in your life, is to make a tribute donation to Interfaith Community Services.
With each tribute gift, Interfaith Community Services sends a personalized card to the individual(s) or family that you designate, letting them know about your thoughtful gift. We also list donations made in memory or honor in our ICS Annual Report and Newsletters.
By using stocks, bonds or other securities to fund a charitable gift to an organization like ICS, you may completely avoid the capital gains tax while enjoying a federal income tax deduction for the full value of the securities.

Corporate matching gifts are a great way to maximize personal contributions to Interfaith Community Services and increase the impact of your gift. Many companies offer a matching gifts program through which they will match employee and/or retiree charitable contributions annually, dollar-for-dollar, up to a certain amount per company policy.
If you work for or are retired from a company that matches employee gifts, please contact your Human Resources Office directly for instructions on how to obtain a matching gift form. Please send it to us, along with your contribution, and we will complete the form for your company’s matching gift. Many companies also offer online options for submitting a matching gift or also offer payroll deduction programs.
If your employer participates in the Combined Federal Campaign, the United Way Campaign, other workplace campaigns, or their own campaign, you can direct your donation to benefit Interfaith Community Services. When you choose to designate ICS, your gift is used to help seniors, disabled individuals and disadvantaged families in your local community.
Many employers have “matching gift” programs to encourage individual giving by their employees. Check to see if your employer might match your donation to Interfaith Community Services, or call us at (520) 526-9292, if you would like ICS to provide information to your employer.
If you are participating in a workplace giving program that has not assigned us a code, please write us in as “Interfaith Community Services Tucson.”
