Scholarships for Naomi, Tabitha, Tobias, Poema & Mathias Beard!

Bear family-NCS-1

Hello friends,


Taxes are almost due, and 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 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 the page which explains how this works. 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.


The Beard family has made quite the educational journey since its conception in 2003. The children have experienced foreign “mission field” homeschooling with a tutor, hybrid schooling (a mix of homeschool & classroom instruction), full time “Stateside” homeschooling and are now new residents of Arizona and enrolled at Northwest Christian School (NCS) in Phoenix: Naomi a freshman, Tabitha an 8th grader, Tobias a 5th grader; Poema a 2nd grader, and Mathias a pre-K.


NCS gives us exceptional academic instruction and offers a structure & Christianity community that we have never experienced before while living in the United States. The children are excelling in their studies and taking advantage of both the extra-curricular activities, like volleyball, and additional, special instruction offered at the school, like the Barton Program for dyslexic students. NCS gives our family an opportunity to receive a competent education and grow in our faith rounding out our desire to be a faithful, Christian family engaged in our society wherever God calls us to live and serve.


Your contribution will have a huge impact on our ability to send our children to this great school.  The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to our family is PRICELESS! Everyone really does win! You can redirect your Arizona income tax liability, even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute by April 15th.  Please click here for online contribution, or print and fill out the form here and mail it in. STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes.

Note: If you're a non-Arizona resident and would like to make a charitable donation to help us lower our children's 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.


Please take a few short minutes to watch the video below, and call me if you have questions, or you can speak directly with the very helpful staff at STO4KIDZ (602-698-8855).



Thank you so much for your consideration.

Jonathan & Marilyn Beard, and on behalf of Naomi, Tabitha, Tobias, Poema & Mathias.
