Arizona Tax Credits

Dear Civano Families & Friends,


THANK YOU so much to our families who have made their tax credit contribution this year! These tax credit contributions are how we fund our Arts program at Civano!


You STILL have time to make an AZ Tax Credit contribution. In fact the extended tax deadline lets you make a contribution for last year (2020) as late as May 17. Of course you can make a contribution for both 2020 and 2021 at this time as well.


  • Couples filing jointly may take a credit of up to $400 and individuals up to $200.

  • Contribute online https://vailtaxcredits.org or via check in the school office.

  • Giving online? Please select “Greatest Need” at the bottom of the page and when directed to choose a school, select “Civano Community School”.

  • Public school tax credit gifts for the 2020 tax year may be made right up to April 17, 2021.


How Civano Uses Tax Credits: Greatest-Needs tax credit contributions fund

  • Specials -- Art, Drama/Music

  • Artists-in-Residence programs (like previous year’s drumming and movement)

  • Outdoor education programs and field trips (Ironwood Tree Experience, 8th grade backpacking trip) and so much more.


Civano wouldn’t be the school we love without these important programs! Thank you for helping us rise to the challenge!


Sincerely,

The Staff and Students of Civano Community School
