Gesher Disability Resources is a nonprofit disability agency with a mission to support individuals with special needs and their families in the Jewish community to lead fuller lives. The agency’s services are available to the community at little to no cost thanks to grants, donations, and tax credit dollars.
Gesher is also a Qualifying Charitable Organization (formerly known as the “Working Poor”). QCOs are part of the state of Arizona’s Tax Credit Program. Making a donation to Gesher Disability Resources allows the donor to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit when filing state taxes in the state of Arizona.
Beginning in the 2023 tax year, the limits will increase to $421.00 and $841.00, respectively.

This individual income tax credit is available for contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations that provide immediate basic needs to residents of Arizona who receive temporary assistance for needy families (TANF) benefits, are low income residents of Arizona, or are individuals who have a chronic illness or physical disability. The tax credit is claimed on Form 321.
The maximum QCO credit donation amount for 2023:
$421 single, married filing separate or head of household; $841 married filing joint.
The maximum QCO credit donation amount for 2024:
$470 single, married filing separate or head of household; $938 married filing joint.
Please Note: Arizona law allows QCO donations made during 2023 or donations made from January 1, 2024 through April 15, 2024 to be claimed on the 2023 Arizona income tax return. The maximum credit that can be claimed on the 2023 Arizona return for donations made to QCO’s is $421 for single, married filing separate or head of household taxpayers, and $841 for married filing joint taxpayers. If a taxpayer makes a QCO donation from January 1, 2024 through April 15, 2024 and wants to claim the higher 2024 maximum credit amount, the taxpayer will need to claim the credit on the 2024 Arizona return filed in 2025.
