Scholarships for Cheyenne & Dillan!


Hello Family and Friends,

As many of you are aware, Cheyenne and Dillan have been attending public school since they were in kindergarten. We always had peace about them attending public school, until recently. With many changes that were beginning to happen within our world, we sadly began to see these changes filter into our girl’s education. We began to dive deep into the curriculum the girls were being taught and it was alarming for us.


It was at that point that we began to ask God to help us be in line with His plan and desires for Cheyenne and Dillan’s education. We want more than anything for our girls to be raised on Biblical truth. God led us to Scottsdale Christian Academy and everything came together quickly.


Cheyenne is now a 4th grader and Dillan is in 1st grade and we are thrilled they are beginning this new year at a Christian school. We have the confidence that our girls will receive an excellent education in a loving and nurturing environment, as well as develop skills to equip them to live in the world as we know it. Most importantly, Cheyenne and Dillan are in an environment where they can grow spiritually. Our goal is to keep them enrolled in Christian school through the 12th grade.


In search of ways to reduce tuition, we learned the state of Arizona allows its taxpayers to allocate their income tax liabilities to create scholarships for private school students and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit by contributing to an organization like STO4KIDZ that acts as the intermediary, and they allocate funds to help with tuition fees. This is not a donation; it’s income taxes that we all must pay anyhow. It is truly a win-win outcome for the “taxpayer” and our children, “the students.”


The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to our children is both meaningful and PRICELESS. Everyone really does win! You can take the tax credit even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute through April 15.  You can contribute here, or print the form here and mail it in with a check. STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes with details on how to claim your tax credit.


Note: If you're a non-Arizona resident and would like to make a charitable donation to help us lower their 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 moment to watch a short video at the bottom of this page that explains how it works. We will allocate our taxes to provide scholarships for other students because we cannot redirect it for our own children, and would be most grateful if you consider doing the same for our girls to help us lower their tuition at no out-of-pocket cost.


If you have any questions you can contact STO4KIDZ at 602.698.8855 or reach out to us.


Thank you so much for your consideration!
