Credit for Donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations
(formerly known as the Working Poor Tax Credit)

As the year ends, we’d like you to let you know of another way to donate to the Poore Clinic at no cost to you.

The “Credit for Donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations” is an Arizona state tax credit for contributions made to qualifying  Arizona 501(c)(3) non-profit charities, like the Poore Clinic, that provide assistance to low-income individuals.

Tax credit charitable contributions made and postmarked by December 31, 2016 reduces your tax liability dollar-for-dollar. This means the tax credit will come off the top of your state tax bill, either lowering the amount of taxes you pay or increasing your refund amount.

This tax credit is in addition to your public and private school tax credit donations. In other words, you can receive tax credits for BOTH this charitable contribution and the school tax credit.

Married couples filing jointly can now donate up to $800 to this charitable contribution tax credit and an additional $400 to the school tax credit (single heads of households can donate up to $400 per tax credit).

To qualify for the tax credit, you simply need to claim your contribution on your 2016 Arizona tax return. To contribute send a check to:

Poore Medical Clinic
120 W. Fine
Flagstaff, AZ 86001

You may also contribute through our PayPal account using our online donation form. The Poore Clinic will send you a receipt.

Thank you again for your continued support of our clinic. Your donations make a big difference in the health of our community. Thank you!

If you have questions about your eligibility for our services or to schedule an appointment, please do not send email, but call us at 928-213-5543.

So long as a spark remains, a fire can start.

At 80 years old, when most people sit back to watch the world go by, Dr. Henry Wayne Poore and his wife Nina stood up and organized Flagstaff’s first wholly free Medical Clinic. The opening of the clinic in 2011 culminated a life of service and community—one that touched the lives of thousands of Arizonans and took him and Nina to Kenya, Honduras, Alaska, Mexico, the Navajo Nation, and the shattered aftermath of Katrina.

Some people derive joy from their work. Henry Wayne Poore did more than that—he wove joy into his work every day.  For thousands of patients and hundreds of friends, a visit with Dr. Poore included humor, music, or stories. He healed bodies and uplifted souls.

The spark is not extinguished. It is merely passed on—to you.  We hope you will continue Dr. Poore’s efforts to deliver the care that’s needed, woven with the joys life requires.

The Poore Medical Clinic is a non-profit, volunteer-run
FREE Medical and Dental Clinic
for the low-income, uninsured people of Northern Arizona.
