Tax Credit Scholarship for Lennon Makinde!

Lennon Makinde

Dear Friends and Family,

We're excited to share that our beloved Lennon is thriving in her studies at Phoenix Christian School. As we navigate through her school journey, we're reaching out to you with a humble request. We're asking for your consideration in making a tax credit contribution towards Lennon's education so she can continue her studies at Phoenix Christian School.

Arizona taxpayer you can choose how your state income tax dollars are used. By contributing to STO4KIDZ, you’ll receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit and Lennon will receive a scholarship to lower her tuition at Phoenix Christian School. Unlike a charitable deduction, which lowers taxable income, a tax credit directly reduces state tax liability. This results in a larger refund or less owed taxes when you file.

This will have a huge impact on our ability to send Lennon to a great school! We would be so grateful if you would consider redirection a portion of your taxes to help us lower their tuition.


Two Opportunities to Contribute and Make a Difference

Maximum tax credit allowed OR your actual tax liabilities

2023 Tax Year

$2,609.00 - Filing Jointly/ Married
$1,307.00 - Filing Singly

2024 Tax Year

$2,910.00 - Filing Jointly/ Married
$1,459.00 - Filing Singly

The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to Lennon is PRICELESS! Everyone wins! This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all must pay anyhow, even if you plan to file for an extension. You get 100% of it back as a credit; your Arizona tax liability is reduced dollar-for-dollar when you contribute to a school tuition organization like STO4KIDZ as long as you contribute by April 15 of each year, (or the designated date set by IRS) you can take the tax credit.

We appreciate you wholeheartedly!
