BHHS Legacy Foundation


Double the value of your donation by donating to Legacy Connection…

Legacy Connection and BHHS Legacy Foundation have partnered with Assistance League of East Valley.   All donations made to Legacy Connection and directed to Assistance League of East Valley/Operation School Bell® program will be matched by BHHS Legacy Foundation, up to $25,000.

One hundred percent (100%) of your donation plus BHHS Legacy Foundation matching funds will benefit children grades K – 6 who are at risk and attend East Valley  schools in  Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe and Chandler  by providing them with new school uniforms, clothing, shoes and hygiene kits.

Legacy Connection is the fundraising affiliate of BHHS Legacy Foundation. Legacy Connection is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a qualified charitable organization under the Arizona Department of Revenue.

Donations to Legacy Connection, a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity, are tax- deductible to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Donations  qualify for an Arizona tax credit for a contribution to a Qualifying Charitable Organization to the extent permitted by applicable law (ARS 43-1088).

The Arizona Charitable Organization Tax Credit recently doubled. Starting in 2016, your eligible donation to Legacy Connection (a qualifying charitable organization under ARS 43-1088) can be directly credited against your Arizona taxes (up to $800, if filing a joint return; $400, if single). That’s a dollar for dollar tax credit, plus it’s deductible on your federal taxes.

Please consult your tax advisor to determine if you are eligible to use this credit.
