How It Works for Individual Donors

The donation process is very simple.

 1.  Determine the amount you are able to donate.

Maximums for 2019 are $1,135 if you file your taxes as single, and $2,269 if you file your taxes as married. Donations for the 2019 tax year can still be made through April 15th, 2020.
Maximums for 2020 are $1,183 if you file your taxes as single, and $2,365 if you file your taxes as married.

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.

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.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer’s name below.

If your company is eligible, contact your HR department to request the match. Use the information we provided on the receipt we sent you to complete the information. If you need a new copy of your receipt we will gladly send you one. We will do the rest.

Most companies allow you to recommend a child for your donation. We will honor that recommendation. The impact is incredible as your donations may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
