Since 1965, Camp Wildcat has enriched the lives of thousands of Tucson's disadvantaged youth by teaching them the value of a college education through fun and educational camps and activities. Camp Wildcat is staffed and directed entirely by University of Arizona student volunteers, and we rely on the hard work of our members at fundraising events and the generosity of our donors to keep operating and holding camps. Thank you for your support!
Did you know that you can make a donation to Camp Wildcat and receive an Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (better than a deduction) on your 2018 Arizona Taxes? This is a dollar for dollar tax credit i.e. each dollar you give to CW comes off of your tax bill!
Camp Wildcat is proud to be a qualified charitable organization for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. Individuals can give up to $400 and married couples and give up to $800 per year and Arizona will give you a dollar for dollar credit on your tax liability – sometimes increasing your refund. Visit https://www.azdor.gov/About/FAQs/CharitableTaxCredit.aspx for more information.
Remember, the credit for donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations is separate from other Arizona tax credits such as the School Tax Credit and the Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization Tax Credit. You may be eligible to donate to all within the same tax year.
Your donations are tax-deductible since Camp Wildcat is recognized as a tax-exempt charitable organization under IRC Section 501(c)(3) with EIN 86-0643886.
If you prefer to send a donation, checks should be made payable to "Camp Wildcat" and can be mailed to:
Camp Wildcat normally participates in #AZGivesDay, a 24-hour day of statewide giving, and would appreciate your support. Please help us spread the word or, even better, schedule your gift in advance at https://www.azgives.org/campwildcat.
