Governor Ducey on Friday signed SB 1027, a bill sponsored by Senator Vince Leach that will allow groups doing outstanding work with dementia patients to take advantage of a new incentive for Arizonans to donate.
Up until now, charitable individual tax money could be directed to organizations providing services to children with a chronic illness or physical disability. But many people have needs later in life, such as those diagnosed with Parkinson's or Alzheimer's diseases.
"I have seen firsthand the amazing work these organizations are providing, and they're doing high-quality work on limited budgets," said Senator Leach. "With this bill, these groups will be able to expand their services and bring better outcomes to thousands of Arizonans."
To qualify for the charitable tax credits, the organization must spend at least 50% of its budget on services to individuals having a chronic illness or physical disability.
