Schoarship for Jaden Thomas!

Jaden 3

Dear Family and Friends,

Jaden is a gifted child with a big heart that would help anyone in need. He has a little brother with special needs and every day he shows me how patient and a great role model he is in navigating day-to-day life. He has a big passion for trains and can tell you all about the specifics of several models as well. I am proud of everything he has accomplished thus far and cannot wait to see how much more he blossoms through the years. He's a brilliant young man, a Mensa member, that thrives in every environment.

Jaden chose LeadAZ Private School for the 5 to 1 mentorship model, autonomy, and flexible classroom approach. He consistently outperforms his peers, working two grade levels ahead in academics. With the third-highest standardized test scores in the district, he also qualified for the gifted program. His mentor guides him to make wise choices and encourages excellence beyond academics.

In ways to lower his tuition fees, I've learned about the AZ tax credit program. taxes almost due, if you didn't know already, Arizona gives you the choice of how your taxes are used. You can allocate state income tax dollars to create scholarships for kids like ours in private schools at no net cost to you. This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow. Feel free to watch the video at the bottom of this page which explains how this works.


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

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 that in turn gives tuition scholarships to kids like ours in AZ private schools.  This will have a huge impact on our ability to send Jaden to LeadAZ Private School! I redirect my taxes to another student since the state won't allow parents to allocate their taxes to one's own children. I'd be grateful if you consider redirecting yours to help lower Jaden's tuition.

For your convenience, here is a step-by-step guide and the donor form. Please list Jaden Thomas at LeadAZ Private School. STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes with instruction on how to claim your dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

We are most grateful for your consideration.
