Scholarship for Taylor Young
You may already know already, Arizona gives you the choice of how your taxes are used in the form of a tax credit. One of the options is the private school tax credit, which helps create scholarships for kids like ours at no cost to you.
We moved to Phoenix three years ago, since then my husband and I have been concerned about our daughter, Taylor, who had been attending public school since 1st grade. Thou her grades were good but didn’t seem to be learning her subjects. We were concerned that she was being overlooked with the large classroom sizes and just being graded on participation rather than knowledge. Taylor also seemed discouraged and overly concerned about what to wear and not being bullied again. My husband Dillon is a Fire-Fighter with the City of Phoenix and had heard many recommendations about Northwest Christian School (NCS). We wanted a school that would give Taylor the opportunity to flourish and reach her potential in a safe, loving, and faith-based environment., so we took a tour and knew that we had found a home away from home for Taylor at NCS.
Taylor started in August and we have seen a completely different child. She is learning, understanding the material, and is improving her grades. She is excited and eager to learn and looks forward to schooling. She has made friends rather than being bullied and isn't concerned with what to wear. She says that uniforms "give me a brain break in the morning." She serves the little children at our church and most recently made the decision to be baptized!!! We feel this has been the best decision we have ever made for our daughter; I can't express that enough. If you are able, would you consider allocating a portion of your taxes to help us lower her tuition so she can continue attending this wonderful school!
Here is how it works:
Anytime between now and April 15, 2021, you can contribute to School Tuition Organization 4 Kidz (STO4KIDZ) a charitable organization that awards a minimum ninety percent of every dollar in scholarships to qualified private school students in Arizona. You simply have the option of paying your taxes to the state or redirecting those funds through this program and recommend a student if you like. The net cost to you is ZERO while the benefit to our family is PRICELESS!
The Arizona 2020 Tax Credit Maximums is $2,365 if married filing jointly/ & $1,183 if filing single, or your actual tax liability, whichever is less. You can contribute online here through April 15, 2021, or print and fill out the form here and mail it in with a check. STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes.
If you are a non-Arizona residence and would like to help us lower Taylor's tuition, you can donate online here or print the donation form here and mail it with your check. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible because STO4KIDZ certified by the IRS as a 501(c)3, non-profit charitable organization.
We appreciate your consideration. We are redirecting our income taxes to assist another family since we can’t utilize it for our own child.
Please feel free to call either of us if you have question, or speak directly with the incredible staff at STO4KIDZ (602-698-8855).
Ashley, Dillon & Taylor
