Beans & Rice Annual Gathering and Fundraiser
Saturday, September 26th 4:00 p.m. PST / 7:00 p.m. EST. It’s that time of year again! Family and friends are coming together for the Poore Medical Clinic’s “Beans & Rice” fundraising gathering. This will be a live one hour online event originating from the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff. It will be available as a free live stream viewable directly from our website. Gather the family in the comfort of your home to hear stories and music from old friends and maybe make a few new ones. All proceeds support the Clinic’s mission of providing free primary medical and dental care to the uninsured in Coconino County.
Plan Ahead for the 2020 tax credit!
Plan ahead for your tax credit donation for your 2020 Arizona State tax return. While you may be familiar with the school tax credit in Arizona, you may not know that in addition to a school tax credit donation, you may also make a tax credit contribution to a Qualifying Charitable Organization in the same year. The Poore Medical & Dental Clinics are a Qualifying Charitable Organization. You can start making tax credit contributions for your 2020 tax return now.
Q: How much can you donate?
A: A married couple filing jointly can receive a maximum tax credit of $800. If you are single, or an unmarried head of household, or married filing separately, you may receive a maximum tax credit amount of $400.
Q: How do you qualify?
A: To qualify for the tax credit, you simply need to claim the contribution on your 2020 Arizona tax return. This tax credit may be claimed in addition to other Arizona tax credits, such as those for public schools or school tuition organizations.
Q: How do you donate?
A: It’s simple. Just write a check made out to the Poore Medical Clinic and mail it in the envelope provided. We’ll send you a receipt. For more information visit flagstafftaxcredit.org or https://www.azdor.gov/about/faqs/charitabletaxcredit.aspx
Does your Flagstaff dentist volunteer at our Sid Davis, DDS Memorial Dental Clinic?
We currently have a backlog of six months for our patients waiting to see a dentist for primary dental care. There are 72 dentists in Flagstaff and eight of these wonderful professionals volunteer to see patients at our dental clinic.
Please ask your dentist whether she/he also volunteers to see patients at our dental clinic. If the answer is yes, please say Thank You on behalf of our grateful patients. If the answer is no, please ask them Why Not? A dentist volunteering even one half of one day in a month will help us provide professional dental care to people in need.
The Poore Medical Clinic is a non-profit, volunteer-run
FREE Medical and Dental Clinic
for the low-income, uninsured people of Coconino County.
