Individual Donations – DONATE to TopsForKids * DONATE to Arizona Tuition Connection

The state of Arizona offers its taxpayers the opportunity to make contributions to schools and non-profit organizations that reduce the amount of tax owed to the state or increase the amount of the taxpayer’s refund, dollar-for-dollar. There is NO NET COST to the donor, and deserving individuals around the state benefit. There are three main communities tax credit donations serve, and donors can contribute to any or all of them. To learn more about each, contact one of our Student Tuition Organizations (STO’s).

Four Main Tax Credits > Scholarship Programs

Individual Tax Credit: All students will be enrolled in this program first. (Any & all students who attend a private school qualify for a scholarship through this credit.)

PLUS “Switcher/Overflow” Tax Credit: This program was new in 2012 and is primarily for those switching from the public to a private school and kindergartners, preschool disabled, an active Arizona military child, and those who have previous received a low-income corporate or PLUS scholarship in previous years.

Low-Income Corporate Tax Credit: This program has been around since 2006 to aid low to moderate income family in switching from a public school to a private school. Since the inception of this program, over $40 million in scholarship have been awarded to aid thousands of children. The requirements to receive aid under this program are based on 185% of the free/reduced lunch program guidelines. See the chart HERE for specific amounts.

Disabled/Displaced Corporate Tax Credit: A superior alternative to the ESA vouchers, allowing families to receive funding with out the commitments and strings attached for the families who benefit and the schools that support them. Tax Credit Scholarships allow the school to be fully and primarily committed to the families who choose to attend.
