Invest in the future

Watch your donation grow

Early education is not an expense, it’s a sound investment: for every $1 put toward early childhood, there is a $16 return to the community through graduation rates, higher wages, and decreased dependence on welfare. Your contribution to Arizona’s children through Candelen’s essential services brings prosperity back to the community and to you. Your gift can ensure a better future for the next generation.

Candelen is a Charitable Tax Credit Organization

This means, if you are a resident of Arizona, one of the easiest ways to make a difference for our youngest learners is by investing your tax credit in early childhood education. This is not a tax deduction, but an actual credit. Currently, married couples can reduce what they owe in state taxes by $800. Single filers are eligible for a $400 credit.
