Arizona Tax Credit Information

Would you like to help our schools financially while also reducing the amount of money you have to pay directly to the state in taxes this year? The Arizona state school tax credit program is something we can all get behind! We win, and you win when 100% of your donation goes directly to the school and program of your choice.

What Is It?

Arizona Law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows married couples filing jointly a tax credit of up to $400 and individual taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 when they contribute to extracurricular activities in public schools. Your contribution goes directly to our school, and we can even apply the funds to your child’s participation fees for one of our extracurricular programs. Your donations support student activities not provided for under Arizona school budget parameters.

Who Can Contribute?

This tax credit is available to all who reside in Arizona and have a tax liability at least equal to the amount of their donation. You do not have to be a parent of a child in our school district to benefit from this law.

How Do I Receive My Tax Credit?

To make a contribution and receive the tax credit, please take the following steps:
