Scholarship for Aviana!

Deortintiis, Avi-XCP

Hello friends,

Aviana has been accepted to Xavier College Preparatory for high school!  She is excited about this new chapter and recognizes the importance of an excellent education. She has worked hard during her middle school years and is committed to continuing that hard work and making the most of this opportunity.


In search of ways to reduce Aviana’s tuition, we learned the state of Arizona allows its taxpayers to allocate their income tax liabilities to create scholarships for private school students and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit by contributing to an organization like STO4KIDZ that acts as the intermediary, and they allocate funds to help lower Avi’s tuition. This is not a donation; it’s income taxes that we all must pay anyhow. It is truly a win-win outcome for the “taxpayer” and Avi, the “student”.


The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to Aviana is both meaningful and PRICELESS. Everyone really does win! You can take the tax credit even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute through April 15.  You can contribute here, or print the form here and mail it in with a check. STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes with details on how to claim your tax credit.


Note: If you're a non-Arizona resident and would like to make a charitable donation to help us lower tuition for Aviana you can donate here or print the donation form here and mail it along with your check to STO4KIDZ. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible as STO4KIDZ is a 501(c)3, non-profit charitable organization.


Please take a moment to watch a short video at the bottom of this page that explains how it works. We allocate our taxes to STO4KIDZ to provide scholarships for another student because we cannot redirect it for our own child's benefit.  Tony and I would be most grateful if you consider doing the same for Avi and help us lower her tuition at no out-of-pocket cost. 


Please call us with any questions. We would be more than happy to walk you through the process and welcome the opportunity to connect.  You can also speak directly to the staff at School Tuition Organization 4 Kidz (STO4KIDZ) by calling 602.698.8855.


Thank you so much for considering Aviana as a beneficiary of your tax dollars!

Tony and Michelle Deortentiis, and on behalf of Aviana.
