TAX CREDIT HELP, BUT LOCAL INSTITUTIONS AREN’T LOOKING AT VOUCHERS AS A BOON

How important to your school’s financial health is the Arizona program of tuition tax credit for donations to school tuition organizations?

“The Arizona State Tax Credit has overwhelmingly served Brophy since our schools were founded to serve all qualified students regardless of their ability to pay. Why? A hallmark of Jesuit education is diversity in race, socio-economics, and religion. The tax credit has made a Brophy Jesuit education available to heaps of qualified students who not only qualify by academic standards but by need as the Brophy Community Foundation only distributes monies to students with verified need, which is the intent of the original legislation.”
