CONSIDER A DONATION TO THE SCHOA FOUNDATION ON YOUR 2020 AZ STATE TAXES
The SCHOA Foundation serves the community through the funding and coordination of projects that do not fall under the ordinary responsibilities of any other community agencies or organizations. Along with SCHOA, the Foundation is committed to maintaining our property and community values for generations to come. The Foundation, as an arm of Sun City Home Owners Association, is a 501(c)(3) designated Corporation under IRS guidelines, which allows anyone to make tax-deductible gifts to the Foundation. The SCHOA Foundation is also an Arizona Qualified Charitable Organization (QCO) which means that individuals can donate up to $400 ($800 per household) of the amount they would normally pay to Arizona State Income Tax. Please use QCO code 22263 on AZ form 321.
RAMP is Supported by SCHOA Foundation
SCHOA Foundation is partnered with Sun City Home Owners Association by accepting Tax Deductible Donations for the funding of the Residents Assistance & Maintenance Program (RAMP). RAMP is totally supported by donations to help members of Sun City whose property has become over grown with weeds or the trees and shrubs are in need of containment and the owner(s) are unable to financially or physically handle the clean-up themselves.
For a homeowner to qualify for this program, a person must meet certain income and other requirements. Upon acceptance, the homeowner’s property will be maintained one time to community standards at no cost. This program is supported by Neighbors helping Neighbors.
This not only greatly benefits the homeowner, but also our community as a whole. A cleaner looking Sun City is most desirable to help those seeking a beautiful place to live. The goal is for prospective buyers to envision that this place is comforting and worthwhile to move to and call home. Property values of everyone benefit by remaining strong.
SCHOA Foundation Supports Painting of Walls
The walls facing major street throughout Sun City are actually the property of individual homeowners ad Condo Homeowner Associations, but were never addressed as to who should be responsible for their upkeep. There is approximately 17 miles of painted walls that need attention every 10 to 15 years. The last time they had been painted was the year 2000.
The Non-Profit 501(c)3 Corporation of SCRAP (which we later changed the to SCHOA Foundation) decided, since they were deteriorating, something had to be done and took on the project of painting the walls with the help of donations and volunteers. The first wall received a new coat of paint in May of 2016 and the entire project was completed in less than 3 years and under projected budget.
The Foundation is receiving donations so that we can maintain any walls that will need further attention and at the same time knowing the walls will need to be repainted by the year 2030. The entire community benefits in seeing that the walls remain looking bright and fresh looking. One more reason for the present residents to look with pride with their community and for perspective buyers to look in favor of making Sun City their new home.
