Tax Credit Donations

Remember that each year there is an AZ tax credit of $200 for individuals and $400 for families when you donate to a school. This means that if you give a donation of that amount to the school (with receipt) you get that as a tax credit back on your AZ state taxes. These donations are used to help our sports and other extracurricular activities. Please talk to Betty at the front office if you'd like to make a donation. For more information, you can go to
