Make a Difference with Your School Tax Credit Donation


Helping local schools has never been easier. Make a school tax credit donation today.

School tax credits are a win-win for students and taxpayers. Everyone has the opportunity to make a tax credit contribution to local schools — even those without children.

Making a donation is easy: Donate online, keep your receipt and claim your tax credit when you file. Every dollar reduces your tax liability.

Through the Arizona tax credit program (ARS 43-1089.01), taxpayers can donate up to $200 to help fund extracurricular activities and receive every dollar back in the form of a tax credit. Taxpayers can contribute up to $200 for an individual and $400 for a married couple. 

Make the right choice for your school tax credit donation.

Not all school districts benefit equally from the tax credit program. One school district received as little as $3 per pupil, while another received as much as $135 per pupil. 

Use the graph below, or our interactive elementary and high school district maps, to select a high-need school for your school tax credit contribution.
