Catholic Charity for Education Catholic Education Arizona and formerly CTODP have been being used by people who support Catholic Education for years. Catholic Education Arizona enables people to change their tax dollars into parts of tuition for Catholic Schoolgoers. The money for Public Schools is redirected into tuition for those who cannot afford to attend Catholic School. This is used for both Primary and High Schools.

Catholic Education Arizona, or the former name being CTODP is a foundation that allows people to use their tax dollars and send them to funds for children going to catholic schools. "CTODPÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â . " CTODP. N.p., n.d. Web. 04 Sept. 2012. <http://school.sdtp.net/ctodp. html>.
