Arizona Tax Credit– Donation Opportunity 

The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School’s goal of $93,750.00. The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education and STEM, which each student participates in and Physical Education including Character Education, in which students participate in daily. It also helps support our Library and computer lab time for our students. At the Junior High and High School levels this helps support our amazing electives offerings.

The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.

AZ Tax Credit Donation:


Our Private Montessori School gives out around $45,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need, we are able to offer these scholarships because of the Arizona Private School tax credit program. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes with this program as well.
