The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School’s goal of $86,000.00, we saw an incredible response this Giving Tuesday and have raised $27,000.00, thank you! The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education, which each student participates in and Physical Education, in which students participate in daily. It also provides weekly Library time for our students. At the high school level this helps support our amazing electives offerings. The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
