William, Kate & Lily Koster

Koster, family-2


Hello family and friends,

As we are closing in the holiday season, we thank you for your friendship and want to update you about our family!

William is truly enjoying his freshman year at Brophy College Preparatory.  He is excelling academically in each of his honors classes, making many new friends, and embracing new opportunities.  He is honored to host incoming freshman “shadows” as they tour campus for a day.  William also plays basketball for a club team and golfs when he has spare time.  We are incredibly proud of the young man he is becoming.  


Kate is enjoying a new experience this year, as she is a new 8th-grade student at All Saint’s Episcopal Day School.  She is applying to various high schools and is excited to discover where she is meant to spend the next four years of her academic journey.  Kate is thriving being in a smaller school community, as she enjoys the National Junior Honor Society, debate club, and being an acolyte in the chapel.  Kate’s true passion is riding horses, which she does weekly.


Lily loves life!  She attends preschool daily, swim class, and ballet/tap class weekly.  She loves baking with her mom, singing, coloring, and swimming with her dad.  She is beginning to learn to read too.  We are applying to three amazing private schools for Lily to begin kindergarten next year.  We wish to give her the best start for her academic years ahead so that she will continue to love learning. 


You may already know, that Arizona gives you the choice of how your taxes are used. You can allocate state income tax, receive a dollar-for-dollar credit,  and  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.  We have been allocating our taxes to help other students and would be grateful if you would do the same and help us lower our children's tuition. Your dollar-for-dollar allocated tax contribution will have a huge impact on our ability to send William, Kate, and Lilly to schools that would best prepare them for their future.  The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to our family is PRICELESS! Everyone wins!


You can contribute here, even if you plan to file for an extension, as long as you contribute by April 15th.  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 watch a short video below that explain this amazing program and contact us at 602.402.8568 with any questions, or you can speak directly with the very helpful staff at STO4KIDZ at 602-698-8855.


Thank you so much for your consideration.

Warmest regards,

James and Jennifer

William, Kate, and Lily
