What's an ECA Tax Credit Donation??

All Arizona taxpayers are eligible to make contributions to public schools to support extracurricular activities. The Leona Group is working with American Charter Schools Foundation (ACSF) and Kaizen Education Foundation (KEF) schools to collect funds for tax credits. You can help students while lowering your tax bill by making your tax-deductible contribution today! Tax donations are non-refundable.
