Where is the donation going?

Valley Tuition Organization puts a high priority on the intentions of the person who made the donation, however, our criteria is not solely based on donor recommendations, Other factors we consider when awarding scholarships include the income of the family, the school and if the student qualifies for programs that we offer.

It is important to understand that not every student is eligible to receive every type of scholarship. However, students of any income bracket are eligible to receive some tuition tax credit scholarships and we encourage all students to apply for scholarships.

Where is the donation going?

1. Determine the donation amount. Maximum credit in 2019 for single filers is $1,135 and married filing jointly is $2,265.

2. Would you like to recommend a school or student? Recommending a student or school is optional, but we will follow the intent of your recommendation to the extent the law will allow. Donations received without a student or school recommendation or donations received in which the recommended student is not eligible for all scholarship funds, will be pooled and awarded to low income families.

3. Make your donation!

4. Take the donation as a dollar-for-dollar credit on your AZ state taxes. In addition, VTO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Ask your accountant or tax professional if you can claim a federal tax deduction as well.
