It's not too late to make your charitable tax donation! Arizona offers a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for contributions to qualifying charities and The Arizona Burn Foundation is one such organization. This means you can make a donation (of any amount) and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit (up to $400 for single filers, $800 if married filing jointly) when you file your Arizona tax return.

Simply make your donation at azburn.org/taxcredit/ and when you file your Arizona state tax return use the Qualifying Charitable Organization code 20667 to indicate you donated to Arizona Burn Foundation. ... See MoreSee Less

The smoke alarm installation program began in 2006 to assist in preventing home fire deaths or burn injuries to children and adults. This program exists to ensure that burn survivors and community members living in older homes or in high risk areas have at least one working smoke alarm in their home. The Foundation supports and coordinates several installation events each year where volunteers and fire fighters install smoke alarms in high risk households throughout communities in Arizona. For more information contact: programs@azburn.org. You may also sign up to volunteer for a smoke alarm walk by clicking the image below.

Smoke alarms save lives. 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires where there was no smoke alarm installed or no working alarm in the home.  Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half.

As National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports death rates are much higher in fires in which a smoke alarm is present but did not operate, than in home fires with no smoke alarms at all.
