Take Control

o f Y our T ax D ollar s

The State of Arizona allows individual taxpayers to have control over how their tax dollars are spent. Individuals with Arizona tax liability who value education have the opportunity to redirect their tax obligation to a qualified School Tuition Organization (STO) such as the Arizona Independent Schools Scholarship Foundation (AISSF). When you make your tax credit contribution to AISSF and direct your contribution to PCDS, you are helping to create a scholarship fund for PCDS students with demonstrated financial need.
