In Arizona, Rotarians have a unique way to do great Vocational Service in our local communities through The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona.  Individual members can support vocational education grants for the working poor and get a dollar for dollar credit for their donation as a deduction from their state income tax obligation.  Individual donors have until April 15 to make their tax credit donation for the 2018 tax year.  They can make their donations on line at  
Clubs also support TRVFA when they are approached by students who have applied for grants for club sponsorship of their application.  Clubs are urged to develop relationships with their sponsored scholars and include them in club projects and activities.  Some clubs choose to donate from their project budget to support the work of this fine organization. 
TRVFA  was incorporated by Rotarians as a 501(c)(3) public charity which is managed by a board made up entirely of Rotarian leaders.  It is an on-going multi-district project which was "blessed" by Rotary International in 1993.  For over 25 years, this organization was been a model of vocational service enabling the benefitting vocational scholars to move into well paying professions.  The Rotary equivalent of choosing to "teach a man to fish so he will be fed for a lifetime as opposed to giving a man a fish and feeding him for a day."
Even though TRVFA is a Rotary-organized, Rotarian managed charity, supporting TRVFA is not limited to Rotarians.  The tax credit donation opportunity is open to all Arizona residents who will have a state income tax obligation for 2018.  Share this opportunity with your family, friends, and associates.
