Umbrella Organizations

Umbrella Organizations

What is an umbrella organization?

Some charities under the Arizona Qualified Charity Tax Credit have a slightly different designation as “umbrella organizations.” They are eligible for for contributions of $421 per person and $841 per couple as well, but are listed differently on the State of Arizona’s website. 

For example, Executive Council Charities, Valley of the Sun United Way and other United Way organizations across the state are considered umbrella organizations because they may receive tax credit contributions and distribute them to other nonprofit partners in the community. 

Executive Council Charities

Our mission is to support charity organizations focused on helping youth in our community overcome adversity and reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.

Support Arizona Youth (SAY) is the annual campaign for Executive Council Charities (ECC), an umbrella organization for the Arizona charitable tax credit. Through SAY, donors can take advantage of the tax credit for both qualified and foster care charities and choose “Highest Need,” to have the most significant impact among our 60 featured charities, or indicate a preference for any specific qualified charity. Not only are 100 percent of the funds forwarded to benefit vital programs at these charities, but ECC also covers all credit card processing fees.
