    Individual Donations
    Arizona law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return.  That's not just a deduction, it's a tax credit - it reduces what you owe in state taxes, dollar-for-dollar. 

    Make your donation online or send your donation in person to the Arizona Center for Autism. We'll send you a receipt for your records. Then, when you fill out your 2011 Arizona state taxes, you can subtract your donation - up to $400 - from what you owe in taxes.


    2012 Corporate Contributions

    Arizona has become the nation's leader in school choice opportunities!

    Arizona's Corporate Tax Credit (SB 1499 and SB1404) allows corporations to direct a contribution to a qualified school tuition organization (STO) and, at the same time, receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on their Arizona state tax liability. There is no maximum amount that a corporation can contribute, but the program is capped at $29.9 million for fiscal year 2012-2013.

    The Corporate Tax Credit requires the School Tuition Organization (STO) to use 90% of the corporate contributions to provide educational tuition scholarships to low income families, whose student must be switching from a public school to a private school, or entering into a Kindergarten program.

    As a business leader and involved citizen in Arizona, we urge you to become part of the school choice movement in Arizona by redirecting your state tax liability.

    Help provide a quality education to a child that wants that choice. Please donate.
