On Thursday November 16, at the District Governor's official visit, President Allan Cady announced that our club would collectively support TRVFA with $5,000 or more in donations from our members prior to the end of the year.  As you may remember, the fund qualifies for Arizona Tax Credits, so the donations, in qualifying amounts ($400 for individuals and $800 for joint returns), will offset your Arizona State Income Tax obligation dollar for dollar and can also be a qualifying Federal Income Tax Deduction. 
In the three previous years, our Club has made the following donations to TRVFA:
  • 2016: $10,000.00
  • 2015: $5,900.00
  • 2014: $2,374.00
At your very earliest convenience, we ask that you evaluate an appropriate TRVFA donation to address your personal tax planning needs, and then, send an email to me (don.boucher@ccwealth.com) and to Polly Cady (pcady@cadyfam.com) to identify your personal pledge. Your donation should be completed by year’s end (12/31) and you may complete your donation by delivering a check to Polly or by donating online via the link below:
Note: Completing your donation online is the preferred club method for submitting your donation. 
Should you choose to make your donation online via the TRVFA website, please be sure to add “Mesa West Rotary Club” in the area that request:Please list your Rotary Club name here.
Polly and I will look forward to receiving your emails to confirm your personal pledge amount, and we’ll provide weekly updates on our progress to meeting President Cady’s TRVFA pledge of $5,000.00.
Should you have questions or need assistance, please call me (602-510-5285) or Polly (602-741-8835).
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)
We are kind and caring people who make a positive difference in the world, so as always, thank you for all you do!
