Dear Friends of Foster Children/Students!


STO4KIDZ's mission is to enable Arizona families to enroll their children at their school of choice which best meets each child's needs through the Arizona Tuition Tax credit program at NO OUT OF POCKET cost to Individuals and Corporations who would like to allocate their income tax liabilities and invest in K-12 students who attend private schools in Arizona.


Many Foster Families apply to STO4KIDZ for scholarships for their Foster Children to help lower their tuition at the private school they have selected to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment, a place they call home-away-from-home to these precious children.


We desire to do more by coming along our Foster applicant families to provide their children with full-ride scholarships so they continue their education and reach their full potential just like any other child and need Your support, and ease the financial burden!


At no net cost to You or Your business and a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, we invite you to join us in support of Foster Students by simply redirecting a portion of your state taxes toward their tuition.  Your tax credit contribution will have a huge impact on Foster Parents' ability to send these precious children to a school that best meets each child's unique needs.


The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit is PRICELESS to these children! Everyone really wins!  You get 100% of your contribution back as a credit; your Arizona tax liability is reduced dollar-for-dollar when you contribute to STO4KIDZ, which in turn provides scholarships to Foster Students across Arizona.


Two (2) opportunities for you to redirect your taxes and make a difference!


1) Personal Tax Credit:

Make your personal tax credit contribution here, and recommend "Foster Care" for the scholarship.

STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes. This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow, even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute by April 15 of each year, you can take the tax credit. (ARS 43-1089) & (ARS 43-1089.03)


2) Corporate Tax Credit:

* Read the Corporate Tax Credit Fact Sheet and/or visit our STO4KIDZ website for detail.

* Submit your Non-Binding Pledge Form.


Eligible corporations are: C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC that pay taxes as S-Corp, or Insurance company that pays Arizona income taxes on premiums can take the tax credit and allocate taxes towards education.

Arizona Corporate Tax Credit Program allows eligible businesses with an Arizona tax liability to allocate up to 100% of their taxes by contributing to a qualified STO (School Tuition Organization 4 Kidz) AKA STO4KIDZ, and receive a dollar-for-dollar Tax Credit, at No-out-of-pocket-cost to participants. The company does not have to be based in Arizona, provided it pays Arizona tax liability. (A.R.S. 43-1183 & A.R.S. 43-1184)
