Real Wishes Foundation

​​​2017 Wishes Granted:  $6,100.00

Your Contribution Makes a Difference in Cochise County.

In order to assist those individuals in Cochise County, Arizona and make a difference in their lives we rely on donations from people just like you.  Your donations go directly to help those in need.  Our foundation has little to no overhead.  Our Board of Directors are all volunteers and continue to do this work to make a difference in our community. 


The number and the needs of the less fortunate in Southern Arizona have never been greater.  Men and women who have been able to take care of themselves and their families in the past have lost their jobs, their savings, their homes, and their health care coverage.  The Real Wishes Foundation takes each individual "wish" application and works one on one to help those that it can assist with.


You can help.
You can give AND receive.


If you donate to a qualifying charitable organization such as the Real Wishes Foundation in Arizona by Dec. 31st you can claim a tax credit that reduces dollar for dollar what you pay in state income tax for that year.


Couples who file jointly can reduce their state taxes by up to $400;  individuals or head of household filers can claim a tax credit of up to
$200.


The money you would otherwise pay in taxes can benefit your community through the Real Wishes Foundation!


How does it work?


Donate to the Real Wishes Foundation that serves those less fortunate in our community.
1) Prepare your Arizona state tax return.
2) Claim the credit* when you file your return.
3) Giving AND receiving is easier than ever.


Recent state law changes mean you no longer need to itemize your state return to claim this credit. *Form 321, which had been used to
claim this credit prior to 2013, will be revised or a new form will be issued by the Arizona Department of Revenue. Details will be posted on
this site as soon as they become available. The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit is in addition to and completely separate from the Private School
Tuition and Public School Activity tax credits – you may participate in any or all three if you choose.


If you have no Arizona tax liability for the current year, you may carry the tax credit forward for up to five years.


Your donation may also be claimed as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax.


Please make your gift today.


Donations must be received by December 31st and can be made by cash, check or credit card.  Checks should be made payable to:  Real Wishes Foundation and mailed directly to:
