Scholarships for Gisele & Kobe Silvestri!



Hello family & friends,

We believe education is paramount for our children's future and now more than ever we find it's important to use our voices and money to support the things and people we deem so important. We are overjoyed that both of the kids have been accepted into North Valley Christian Academy here in Phoenix and have an opportunity at a first-rate private Christian-based education that matches what we are teaching at home.


This opportunity allows them to grow with their peers through their Senior year in High School and receive the one-on-one attention each needs to excel as the classroom total ranges at 20 or less. They have a school mascot of the Lion (yes!) and we are excited to see each of our cubs reach their greatest potential as they discover and nurture their gifts.


In search of ways to reduce 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 with tuition fees. 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 our children, "the students."


The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to our children 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 online 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 their tuition,  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.


On behalf of Gisele & Kobe, thank you for your consideration!
