Tina sent The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona and her sponsoring club, Chandler-Horizon, a "first day of school" photo.  The photo was taken of her wearing her new scrubs on April 20 - the day she began her dental assisting studies funded by a grant from TRVFA.  Along with the photo was a note saying,  "Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity for a new life for me and my family."
So far in the 2020-21 fiscal year, TRVFA has funded 114 grants totalling $201,841.50.  Each recipient has their own unique story of how the grant will help them move into a much brighter future.   
The deadline for making tax-credit donations to offset State of Arizona income tax obligations for the 2020 tax year has been extended to May 17, 2021.  We are fortunate to live in a state that allows us to choose how some of our income tax liability is spent.  CLICK HERE to donate online.   You can also download a mail-in donation form.
TRVFA can only continue to grow in number of students served, maximum grant amount available, and vocational programs funded with increased donations.  Their program was started by Rotarians over 30 years ago, and still managed by Rotary volunteers. Giving is not limited to Rotarians.  Please share this opportunity with your neighbors, family, friends, and business associates.
If you have already filed your 2020 taxes, it is never too late to start  accumulating your tax credit donation for the current tax year with minimal effort.  Near the bottom of the on-line donation form is an opportunity to choose to make recurring donations to TRVFA.
