It is no secret that the world post-COVID has been a rough couple of years for any organization that does not carry much in the way of cash reserves. In 2020 AZ Burners purchased an amazing property in Cochise County, AZ – and then had to cancel Saguaro Man and Decomp for two years. We now need the help of our friends, family and co-conspirators to get through the next few months.

Please consider making a small tax deductible donation to tide us through until Saguaro Man 2023 sales begin. We need approximately $2,500 dollars to meet our monthly costs between now and March 2023, after which the Saguaro Man 2023 tickets sales will help us cover our ongoing costs. Thank you!

AZ Burners can now issue Tax Deductible receipts for donations.
As of June 10th, 2021 the not-for-profit corporation that was formed to handle the “business” of AZBurners was converted into a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This means that any donations to AZBurners will be tax deductible and AZ Burners will issue a receipt for you to use when filing your taxes.

A quick recap of the past three years:

  • The 2020 Saguaro Man (pre-COVID) ticket sales were used to purchase the AZ Burners’ land outright. We now own 80 acres of land.
  • Saguaro Man 2022 was our first event since COVID. However there was very little new income because we only sold a handful of new tickets. The generosity of our ticket holders rolling over their tickets from the canceled events for two years meant that there was little new income but we still had expenses from 2020 and 2021 to cover.
  • In 2022 we were able to pull off both Saguaro Man in May and Decompression in October on shoestring budgets, but expenses like insurance, heavy machinery rental, porta potty rental, storage, etc were non-negotiable and have eaten into our meager cash reserves.
  • We are putting in place policies and safeguards to prevent this type of shortfall in the future.
