Tax Credit Scholarships for Orme Students!


Dear Friends of The Orme School,

We invited you to support The Orme School Students with your tax dollars at no net cost to you or your business . Your tax credit contribution will have a huge impact on families' ability to send their precious children to a school that best meets each child's unique needs.

The net cost to you is ZERO, yet it's invaluable to our students! A win-win! Your full contribution comes back to you as a tax credit, reducing your Arizona tax dollar-for-dollar.  When you contribute to STO4KIDZ, consequently, your contribution results in tuition scholarships to our students with verified financial need.

The Orme School, situated on an extensive 26,000-acre campus and ranch in Mayer, AZ, is a college preparatory boarding school. Our emphasis is on alternative education, featuring smaller class sizes and hands-on learning, designed to prepare students for life. With a remarkable student-to-teacher ratio of 1:3 and a comprehensive advisory program, we cultivate crucial life skills like independence and time management throughout our high school curriculum.

Because this offers a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your existing state tax obligations, it doesn't impact your bottom line or other charitable initiatives you're engaged in. In essence, the net cost to your company is zero, but priceless to a child. Thank you for your consideration.

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)
