The Heart of Our Work

ICS relies on donors, volunteers, and partners to serve over 60,000 people each year.

Sometimes it’s a single food box to help a family get by until payday. Other clients use ICS services to recover from a crisis like a layoff or serious illness or injury. ICS is a long-term solution for seniors and disabled adults who can continue to live independently at home as long as they have transportation to medical appointments and the grocery store.

For all clients, ICS staff and volunteers provide understanding support when there is no one else to turn to.

You can help.

If you have state tax liability for 2024, your gift can be eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.

Donations to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCOs) like ICS can reduce dollar-for-dollar what you’ll pay later in AZ state income tax for 2024.

  • Married couples filing jointly can claim a QCO tax credit of up to $938.
  • Head of household/single filers can claim a QCO tax credit up to $470.

Qualifying donations can be made now through April 15, 2025.

Consult your tax professional. More information is at azdor.gov/tax-credits.
