Private School Tax Credit

Take the Tax Credit!

Individual Donors

Under Arizona state law, you have a remarkable opportunity to redirect your Arizona tax dollars towards private school education. Donations can be earmarked specifically for the International School of Arizona to create scholarships for students, and you receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit. If you itemize on your Federal tax return, you are eligible to receive a federal tax deduction for their charitable donation.

This is a great opportunity to receive valuable tax benefits, while helping children access a rewarding, multilingual education.

The International School of Arizona works closely with state-approved Student Tuition Organizations, to manage this exceptional tuition scholarship program.

4 Simple Steps to Participate:

  1. Create an account at Arizona Tuition Connection (a nonprofit, 501c3 organization), arizonatuitionconnection.com 480-409-4106
  2.  Make a Private School Tax Credit donation up to the maximum amount allowable for an individual or couple.
  3.  Recommend that the funds go to the “International School of Arizona” and – if you desire name a specific student.
  4. Take the Arizona state tax credit, and if you applicable, itemize your charitable donation on your federal tax return.

Corporate Donors

In 2017, Arizona C-corporations will redirect over to $70,000,000 of state income tax to create private school tax scholarships, while receiving dollar-for-dollar tax credit.   The International School of Arizona is launching a new Corporate Scholarship Program allowing our corporate partners to participate and benefit from their generous charitable giving community.

Under Arizona legislation, Arizona Corporation School Tuition Tax Credit Law, A.R.S. Section 43-1183, followed in 2015 by HB2153,C-Corporations that have Arizona state income tax liability can create International School of Arizona Scholarships for lower and middle-income families who otherwise would not have access to such high-value education.
