Because your charitable donations come out of your after-tax earnings, you may deduct the total amount deducted from your payroll checks during the year on the “Gifts to Charity” line of your Schedule A if you choose to itemize instead of claiming the standard deduction.

Dolly Parton's father's inability to read and write inspired her to start the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) to ensure all children have books at home, regardless of the environment in which they live. 

This Father’s Day, United Way of Northern Arizona would like to recognize and appreciate the significant influence fathers have on their children’s development. From fostering creativity to instilling a love for learning, fathers play a vital role in shaping their children’s future. 📚

UWNA is a proud partner for the DPIL program to help families nurture early childhood literacy.
