Use your taxes to help our school!
By taking advantage of the Arizona tax credit program for private schools, a married couple can donate up to $2134 and a single filer can donate up to $1067 for the 2015 tax year. Your tax credit donation helps fund scholarships for our Kindergarten students and benefits you on your state taxes, all while helping more families afford the quality Christian Kindergarten education we provide.
Although there are several tuition organizations that will receive your tax credit donation and award scholarships to qualifying students/families, we have had the most cooperative relationship with the Institute for Better Education (www.ibescholarships.org), and we would like to encourage you to consider working with them if you plan to help our school in this way.
The other school tuition organizations we have previously worked with are the Christian Scholarship Fund of AZ (www.csf-az.org) and the AZ Christian Scholarship Tuition Organization (www.acsto.org). All of these organizations will oversee tax credit donations received on behalf of St. Andrew’s or specific Kindergarten students, helping fund tuition scholarships for deserving Kindergarten families.
The school office can help match you up with a family planning to attend our school, if you’d like to recommend a specific Kindergarten students. Some businesses may match your donations (for example Raytheon), so check with your employer.
Forms and information for all 3 school tuition organizations are available in the church office (297-7201) and the preschool/kinder office (742-2969) and at the Welcome Tables in each sanctuary. Donations should SPECIFY St. Andrew’s Kindergarten and can be made online for all 3 groups or by mail (check must be made out to the specific tuition organization and NOT to St. Andrew’s). To qualify for this tax year, donations must be made before your taxes are filed for 2015 (April 15, 2016). (Tax credit donations to St. Andrew's and/or St. Andrew's Kinder students can be made in addition to tax credit donations supporting public schools and charitable organizations. You may donate to all three groups each year.)
Thank you for your support!
