NORTHWEST VALLEY CONNECT
Give the Gift of Mobility to seniors, Veterans, and those with disabilities
Northwest Valley Connect is honored to serve this community by connecting seniors and those with disabilities with transportation services in order to preserve and protect the independence and quality of life for the aging and vulnerable population in our communities! During the pandemic, we have been able to continue providing trips for those who need who go to dialysis and other medical appointments and provide a ‘no contact’ solution to get the groceries folks needed. We have also prioritized trips to get our clients to vaccinations as they become available to each age group we serve.
Our drivers provided almost 17,000 trips in 2019 prior to the pandemic. Last year our ridership decreased to 41% but we are looking forward to a bright and busy 2021 as we rebuild our volunteer base and respond to the continuing needs of our community. Your contribution helps immensely in this endeavor.
Here is how you can give the Gift of Mobility:
1. You can contribute to NVC via many paths; the most common is to donate to the Gift of Mobility fund one or many times. You can arrange with your credit card company to become a sustaining donor which allows you to give recurring support for as little as $5 per month!
2. Charitable Giving Incentives (2021 only – see tax instructions). The Consolidated Appropriations Act extends by one year, through 2021, the incentive for individuals who do not itemize to deduct the first $300, and couples $600, of charitable donations from their taxes.
3. Northwest Valley Connect is a qualified charitable organization for your Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit provides a dollar-for-dollar credit to your AZ tax bill. If you are an individual who owes taxes to the State of Arizona, you may offset that tax bill as follows: Individuals can make a donation up to $400 and couples filing jointly can make a donation up to $800! (For additional information regarding Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCOs) from the State of AZ, CLICK HERE Please use the code 20817 when making an Arizona Charitable Tax Credit donation to Northwest Valley Connect.)
