What is a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO)?

The Arizona Department of Revenue has multiple certifications that organizations can apply for that make an organization eligible for tax credit donations. Among these certifications, a QCO is a non-profit that provides a minimum of 50% of its budget in qualifying services to a qualifying population. To learn more about the Arizona Tax Credit, please visit the Arizona Department of Revenue.

Is the Educational Enrichment Foundation a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO)?

Yes, the Educational Enrichment Foundation (EEF) is classified as a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO). Our qualifying code is 20070.

What's a Tax Credit Donation?

The Arizona Tax Credit allows you to contribute up to a maximum of $800 for those who are married-filling jointly and $400 for single heads of household and married couples filing separately. Qualifying donations can be made all year in the way that's easiest for you such as scheduled recurring donations, gifts toward certain programs of interest, or through a one-time gift. EEF is not a tax official and we advise you to check with your tax preparer to verify whether your contribution(s) qualifies as an Arizona Charitable Tax Credit to a Qualifying Charitable Organization (EEF AZ QCO #20070).
