Tax Credit Contributions – Think Win-Win for CGESD!
Learning, Leadership, and Innovation is enhanced when you donate to CGESD
Your tax credit donation helps students become involved in extracurricular activities like athletics; art and music programs; character education; and field trips.
These programs develop well-rounded students who in turn build strong communities. Arizona statute allows individuals/couples to donate $200/$400 for a dollar-to-dollar tax credit.
In fact, many of the extracurricular programs that make CGESD and our students so successful qualify for your tax credit contribution. Programs and activities like:
- Mock Trial
- Science Olympiad
- Chess Club
- Mindsets Ambassadors
- Lighthouse Leaders
- STEAM Fab Labs
- Career Camps
- Field Trips
Tax Credit Contributions
Arizona law ARS 43-1089.01 enables taxpayers a tax credit contribution of up to $400.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married, filing Joint Return; $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Single or Head of Household; and, $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married filing separate return — for contributions that fund extracurricular activities in public schools. A tax credit is a full refund, not a deduction. Contributions eligible for a tax credit are donated directly to schools, not to the state or the school district.
