Last Chance to Make an Impact in 2019!
Thank you for all your support this last year. As you may know, the Arizona Tax Credit helps us continue to do good work in the community, and it benefits YOU — our wonderful donors.
If you file AZ taxes, you may receive 100 percent back as a Charitable Tax Credit. Better yet, the donation amount has doubled to $400 for individual filers and $800 for joint filers.

Got Legs Furniture & Decor
We are still preparing to open our first retail store in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over a year in the making, Got Legs Furniture is a labor of love that we are building from the ground up. We will be selling high-end, designer quality items in the shop, and all proceeds will go toward supporting Bridging AZ's mission.
Our store is not officially open to the public yet, but our newsletter subscribers (YOU) have exclusive early access. We encourage you to visit us and invite your friends!

What Else Have We Been Up To?
We are so pleased to report the Veterans Furniture Project is going strong.
Each week, Jim and dedicated volunteers prepare woodworking materials and teach classes. Together, they travel to a veterans housing complex in Phoenix, engaging local veterans in woodworking projects.
This year, we experienced an unexpected outpouring of support. Our pen making program has created a dedicated community among veterans living in the complex, with some vets returning just to attend our group classes after they have moved away.
We Do Need YOUR Support
Acquiring and delivering furniture is a lot of work. We don't charge veterans for the woodworking classes, and the pen making program is not a funded program. We have made it this far with the support of our friends and dedicated team, but now we need YOU to help us get to the finish line!
Every donation helps, no matter how small. Your generous contribution is also eligible for an Arizona Tax Credit, so get rewarded for helping a good cause.
