Alhambra Elementary School Tax Credit Program
Give Now...Get it ALL Back!
The Alhambra School District is located in west central Phoenix, and
serves more than 15,000 students in preschool through eighth grades.
Children from 57 different countries attend the 15 schools and preschool
in the district. Nearly 88% of the students in the district qualify
for federally subsidized free or reduced-price food services, a
nationally recognized poverty indicator. Our students consistently
overcome insurmountable odds to achieve their goals. Your tax credit
supports outstanding programs that provide each child with the skills
and opportunities to discover, explore, and refine their talents in
STEM, art, music, sports, and band as well as participate in explorative
field trips and after school tutoring to help them achieve their goals.
What is a tax credit?
A tax credit is a dollar-for dollar reduction in the actual tax amount
owed. For example, if you owe $700 in state income taxes and you donate
$400 to a public school for extracurricular activities, you may
subtract the $400 from your tax bill and pay the state just $300. If
you anticipate a refund from the state, it would increase by the amount
of your contribution, assuming you had that amount withheld. So, when
you give now, you truly do get it ALL back!
How is the money used?
According to the law, these donations must be used for extracurricular
activities. With your help, Alhambra is able to offer tutoring, band,
music, art, recreational activities, and much more. Extracurricular
activities help children develop qualities such as leadership, team
play, and cooperation, as well as provide safe, supervised activities
after school hours. These activities provide an opportunity to
experience success! One of our after-school STEM clubs won national
awards two years in a row for designing a robotic arm! Your
contribution inspires innovation!
