During the 2010-2011 fiscal year, 73% of EEF’s total expenditures were spent on direct program services, 19% for fundraising, and 8% for operations and management.
We strive very hard to ensure that the maximum amount of all donations received go directly to EEF’s programs, program services, and delivery of program services. We are diligent about following best practices for non-profit organization administration and annually conduct an outside audit of our finances by an independent auditing and CPA firm. Unless requested otherwise, 10% of donations of $1,000 or more made to EEF for specifically designated programs – Focus on Vision, EEF Shoe Shopping, Interscholastic Scholarships, Hearing Fund, and Classroom Grants – go toward the cost of administrating those programs including application verification, communications, program operations, and program staffing.
Assign Your Arizona Tax Credits for the Working Poor to EEF
Do you pay income taxes in Arizona? Do you itemize your deductions?
You can support EEF's programs with an assignment of your Arizona Tax Credits to the Arizona Tax Credit Program for the Working Poor. It's a great way to support programs you believe in AND decrease your tax liability (or increase your return).

PLEASE NOTE: Depending on your anticipated tax liability, assigning AZ Tax Credits for the Working Poor and designating EEF as a recipient DOES NOT AFFECT your equal ability to also assign tax credits to individual public schools and also utilize Arizona's tax credit program for private school tuition. Each type of tax credit designation is considered a separate and distinct program and an Arizona taxpayer filing as an individual can designate credits for up to $200 ($400 for married couples filing jointly) to EACH program in addition to up to $500 per individual in private school tuition tax credits ($1000 for married couples filing jointly). Consult your tax adviser for details.
For more information about how to utilize your Arizona tax credits for the Working Poor and for Public Schools please see the information provided by the Arizona Department of Revenue by clicking on the link below.
