How It Works for Individual Donors

The donation process is very simple.

 1.  Determine the amount you are able to donate.

Maximum donation amounts by tax year:
For the 2020 tax year: $2,365 filing married jointly, and $1,183 filing single.
For the 2021 tax year: $2,435 filing married jointly, and $1,219 filing single.

2.  Determine if you would like to recommend a school or a student for your donation. 

Recommending a student is optional.  If recommending a student,  you will need to know the students name and the school they attend.  Arizona Tuition Connection will follow the intent of your recommendation to the extent the law will allow.   It is important to realize that not every student is eligible to receive every type of scholarship award. Donations received without a student recommendation, or donations received in which the recommended student is not eligible, will be pooled and awarded to low-income families at that school.

3.  Make your donation.

You can donate three ways; on our secured website, by check, or by phone.  A receipt will be sent to you after you complete your donation.

4.  Take the credit.

Take your donation as a credit when you file your Arizona State Taxes.

5.   Do you have additional tax liability you would like to donate?

Arizona has 5 major tax credits for individuals.  Arizona Tuition Connection participates in the private school tax credit.  If you have additional tax liability you would like to donate or if you would like to learn more about the other tax credits, please go to AZTAXCREDITFUNDS.COM.

There are some rules you need to be aware of:
  • It is against the law to donate to kids within your own household.
  • It is against the law to swap donations with another family.
