Your contribution make a huge difference

Your individual Arizona tax liabilities can be contributed to private school education for a child in need.  Your contribution is at no net cost to you, and you will receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit in return. At least 90% of every contribution will be awarded in the form of scholarships on a monthly basis.

STO4KIDZ accepts contributions throughout the year. Contributions must be made prior to filing your taxes but no later than April 15.

You can contribute up to the combined maximum of the Original ARS 43-1089 and the Switcher ARS 43-1089.03, or your actual Arizona tax liability, whichever is less, and receive a dollar-for-dollar Arizona state tax credit. If you have no liability, you cannot receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

The total tax credit dollar amount for each year is listed bellow.

When you are filing your taxes, you can claim the tax credit by using the Arizona forms 301 and 323 along with state income tax forms. However, if you contribute to the Switcher program, you also need to file a 348 form. Also, use AZ Schedule A to claim the federal deduction. All these forms and more can be found at

Yes! You may recommend anyone who is not your child or dependent. STO4KIDZ selection committee retains discretion regarding all awards. If you have no student preference, you have the option to recommend a private school of your choice. Your tax contribution will then be considered for students attending that school who have completed applications with STO4KIDZ, or you may contribute to STO4KIDZ general funds to be awarded to any qualified student at a private school. The law prohibits parents from swapping tax credit to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent.
