We are grateful for Xavier's continued hospitality in hosting this event and are proud that the concert is once again being presented by Arizona Public Service Company.

For over thirty years, St. Joseph the Worker (SJW) has been assisting homeless, low-income, and other disadvantaged individuals in their efforts to become self-sufficient through quality employment. Last fiscal year, SJW helped 3,681 individuals secure quality, full-time employment and helped to invest $98 million in annual wages back into Maricopa County's economy.  Many more individuals received job-readiness resources and services such as one-on-one coaching, resume writing, personal wardrobe styling, transportation assistance, as well as encouragement and support to pursue a self-sufficient lifestyle. Passionate volunteers dedicated thousands of hours of direct service to SJW's employment program. 

During the past twelve years, these concerts have raised over $450,000 for SJW's good work. Because SJW does not accept government funding, every contribution goes a long way to support SJW's mission of "transforming lives through employment." 

To attend the concert, please obtain tickets from Eventbrite by clicking here.  There is no charge for the concert, but we ask that you consider a donation of $15 per ticket. Of course, other donations are gratefully accepted.
 
And don’t forget, SJW is a Qualifying Charitable Organization for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit  because of its support of Arizona’s low-income residents. For more information on the tax credit click here. If you donate to SJW by April 15, 2020 you can claim a dollar-for-dollar tax credit that reduces the amount of state taxes owed for 2019 or 2020.  Couples who file jointly can reduce their state taxes up to $800; individuals or head of household filers can claim a tax credit of up to $400.  You do not need to itemize deductions.  This credit is in addition to foster care, public school, and school tuition tax credit; you can earn credits from all.
