A significant number of Foster Families seek scholarships from STO4KIDZ to assist in reducing the tuition costs for their Foster Children at the private school of their choice. These scholarships aim to support the Foster Children in accessing a secure, affectionate, and nurturing environment that they consider their home-away-from-home, fostering their growth and well-being.
Our aspiration is to provide full-ride scholarships to Foster applicant families, we aim to ensure that these children have the opportunity to pursue their education and unlock their maximum potential, just like any other child.

STO4KIDZ provides a tax receipt via email. It's important to note that this is not a donation, but rather a utilization of income taxes that we are obligated to pay. Even if you intend to file for an extension, contributing by April 15 each year allows you to claim the tax credit. (ARS 43-1089) & (ARS 43-1089.03)
The Arizona Corporate Tax Credit Program extends eligibility to various types of corporations, such as C-Corps, S-Corps, LLCs that pay taxes as S-Corps, and insurance companies that pay Arizona income taxes on premiums. These eligible businesses can utilize the tax credit by allocating up to 100% of their taxes through contributions to a qualified School Tuition Organization, such as STO4KIDZ. Participating companies receive a Dollar-for-Dollar Tax Credit, without any out-of-pocket costs. It's important to note that the company does not have to be based in Arizona, as long as it bears Arizona tax liability. (A.R.S. 43-1183 & A.R.S. 43-1184)
