As a single mom of 4 children ages 21, 19, 17, and 15, I don’t have extra money to be able to write a straight donation check for up to $400. Just like everyone, I need to pay Arizona State taxes; however, with the Arizona Tax Credit I can choose which non-profit organization close to my heart I want my money to go towards and not just to the State of Arizona. I choose El Grupo Youth Cycling. This organization has been crucial to my family through my divorce and beyond for the last 5 years. Two of my children have graduated from El Grupo and are now prospering in out-of-state colleges while my third child is still on the team. All of my children have learned dedication, hard work, and the importance of giving back to the community through the various El Grupo activities. They all have had the opportunity to race and train throughout Arizona, out-of-state, and internationally. This travel teaches them so much about themselves, their community, and the larger world. They have gained self-confidence, self-esteem, and determination. My other son has done the summer bike camp and can ride confidently on the Tucson streets. Even I have learned so much from El Grupo about cycling, teamwork, and community. I cannot express enough how much joy and happiness it brings me to be able to donate to El Grupo through the Arizona State tax credit without which I could never be considered a donor. Donate today!
