Help us make a difference
At Beacon Group, we serve over 2,000 people with disabilities throughout Arizona each year. We provide job training and placement, supported and center-based employment, and day treatment programs to assist the two-thirds of working-age people with disabilities who do not have a job. We could not do that without the financial support of people just like you. An investment in Beacon Group can make a direct impact right here in our community.
Every Gift Makes a Difference
Supporting organizations like Beacon Group is so vital that Arizona even offers a special tax credit when you do. You can earn a dollar-for-dollar credit for your donation to Beacon – up to $400 for individuals, or up to $800 for married couples or those filing jointly!
Doing something that helps the community – while saving money on your taxes is a WIN- WIN! For every tax credit donation, Beacon Group can provide services to more individuals helping with resume development, job-search, training, pre-employment services, and direct support for successful employment.
Be the Spark of Opportunity for People with Disabilities!
Beacon Group’s QCO Code is 20348.
Dedicate a Paver in the Beacon Flagpole Plaza
At the entrance to Beacon Group’s Tucson facility, a glorious American Flag can be seen from far around as a salute to freedom and diversity. At the base of the flag is a plaza paved with special markers of recognition from supporters of Beacon Group.
Honor a family member or loved one, pay tribute to someone who helped you, commemorate a special occasion/accomplishment, or show your support for employing people with disabilities! As an added benefit, you’ll know that your tax-deductible* gift goes toward creating more opportunities for people with disabilities.
Legacy gifts and planned giving are wonderful ways to ensure that Beacon Group is able to continue creating opportunities for people with disabilities for many years into the future. A charitable bequest of any size or form is one of the most generous and thoughtful ways to make a lasting impact on the community organizations that mean the most to you. Many of these legacy gifts provide tax savings as well. Planned giving options include:
- Charitable Bequest through Will or Trust
- Charitable Trusts and Charitable Remainder Trusts
- Life Insurance Policy Beneficiary
- Retirement Account Assets / IRA Charitable Rollover
Contact your charitable estate planning representative to discuss your many giving options. As you work with your legal and tax advisors, feel free to reach out to our Marketing & Development department at Marketing@BeaconGroup.org or 520-622-4874 x166 to discuss your planned giving intentions.
Donor Advised Fund
It’s easy to support Beacon Group by giving directly from your donor advised fund. A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, or publicly-traded stock through a giving account set up under a public charity, most often a sponsoring financial or community institution. A donor-advised fund represents an alternative option to the establishment of a private foundation. Like private foundations, donor advised funds can be created during the donor’s lifetime or through his or her estate plans. To learn more about setting up a DAF, and directing donations to Beacon, contact our Marketing & Development department at Marketing@BeaconGroup.org or 520-622-4874 x166 or speak with your financial advisor.
Beacon Group accepts appreciated securities. Contact your administrator to let them know of your intention. For instructions on making your stock transfer, please contact Beacon Group’s accounting or development team at 520-622-4874.
