Tax Credit Scholarship for Lennon Makinde!


Hello friends and family,


It’s hard to believe but our little Lennon is starting kindergarten this fall at North Phoenix Baptist! She’s already talking about playing with friends, learning to read, and what outfits she’s going to wear. For the past few years, Lennon has attended the preschool at NPHX. We love the close community between the staff, teachers, and students and we can’t wait to see her continued growth next year!


As you know, Arizona gives us the choice of how our taxes are used.  You can allocate state income tax dollars to create scholarships for kids like ours in private schools at no net cost to you. This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow.


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.


Your contribution will have a huge impact on our ability to send Lennon 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 18th. Please click here for an online contribution, or here to print and fill out the form 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 Lennon'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 at the end of this letter that explains how this program works, and call us, or the staff at STO4KIDZ at 602.698.8855 with any questions.



Thank you very much for your consideration!

Lad & Kristi Makinde
