Scholarship for Josephine!

Josephine Johnson-NVCA

To our family and friends,

It’s crazy to think that next year Josephine will be turning five and starting Kindergarten. She is currently attending North Valley Christian Academy for pre-school and has been there since August. She loves her teacher Miss Macie and her new friends Ryker and Raelynn and talks about them all time.


With her being in a private school and the benefit of a smaller classroom, Josephine has been learning so much, she counts to 40 and recognizes most of the letters of the alphabet. We believe if she was at a different school in a bigger classroom she would still be very shy and not have taken in as much as she has.


In preparation for kindergarten, and how to lower her tuition, we have learned about the Arizona Tax Credit Program that allows taxpayers the choice of how their tax dollars are used. Participants can allocate state income tax dollars to create scholarships for kids like Josephine in private schools at no-out-of-pocket-cost and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit to lower their tax liabilities.  This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow. Would you consider redirecting your taxes to help us lower Josephine’s tuition?


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, which in turn makes scholarship awards.  Please watch the video at the bottom of this page that explains how this works.


The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to Josephine is PRICELESS! Everyone really does win! You can redirect your Arizona income tax liability, even if you plan to file for an extension, so long you contribute by April 15, you receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.


*The Arizona 2020 Tax Credit Maximums is $2,365 if married filing jointly/ & $1,183 if filing single, or your actual tax liability, whichever is less.  You can contribute online here through April 15, 2021, or print and fill out the form here and mail it in with a check.


You can contribute online through April 15, 2021, here, or print and fill out the form here and mail it in with a check. Please recommend Josephine Johnson at North Valley Christian Academy, when making your tax contribution.  STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes.
