How would you like to decide how your tax money is spent?
Thanks to the Arizona tax credit program, you can. You can donate up to $2,106 dollars for married couples and $1,053 for individuals to a qualifying private tuition organization. In return, you will receive a dollar for dollar credit on your Arizona state tax liability for the year. So, if you donate $500 and you owe $750 in state taxes, you will pay just $250. It gives you the opportunity to choose where your tax dollars go. Isn't that a great idea? With the money you donate, these organizations are able to provide scholarship assistance to families enrolling their children in our school. Below is a list of organizations that accept tax credit donations and offer scholarship assistance.

"Our educational work should go this way to achieve harmony - harmony in all the boys and girls who have been entrusted to us; inner harmony, the harmony of their personality. It is by working in a hands-on way, imitating God, molding the lives of those kids like clay, that we achieve harmony and rescue them from the dissonances perennial darkness. Harmony, by contrast, is bright and clear; it is light. What we have to achieve is the harmony of a heart that grows and that we accompany in this educational journey."
~ Pope Francis (then, Cardinal Bergoglio – April 18, 2012)
