Schoarship for Rylee DeAnda!

Rylee 5

Dear Family and Friends,

Rylee, adopted from the Arizona Foster Care System, faced early challenges, including being a shaken baby at 2 months old with both legs broken. Despite enduring trauma and struggling for acceptance, Rylee found a home at The Orme School , where she thrives. This school provides unique opportunities, like the horsemanship program, ensuring a brighter future for her.

In ways to lower her tuition fees, we've learned about the AZ tax credit program. taxes almost due, if you didn't know already, Arizona gives you the choice of how your taxes are used. You can allocate state income tax dollars to create scholarships for kids like ours in private schools at no net cost to you. This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow. Feel free to watch the video at the bottom of this page which explains how this works.


Two Opportunities to Contribute and Make a Difference

Maximum tax credit allowed OR your actual tax liabilities

2023 Tax Year

$2,609.00 - Filing Jointly/ Married
$1,307.00 - Filing Singly

2024 Tax Year

$2,910.00 - Filing Jointly/ Married
$1,459.00 - Filing Singly

You get 100% of it back as a credit; your Arizona tax liability is reduced dollar-for-dollar when you contribute to a school tuition organization like STO4KIDZ that in turn gives tuition scholarships to kids like ours in AZ private schools.  This will have a huge impact on our ability to send Rylee to The Orme School, we redirect our taxes to another student since the state won't allow parents to allocate their taxes to one's own children. we would be grateful if you consider redirecting yours to help lower Rylee's tuition.

For your convenience, here is a step-by-step guide and the donor form. Please list  Rylee DeAnda at The Orme School, STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes with instruction on how to claim your dollar-for-dollar tax credit.


We are most grateful for your consideration.
