ACSTO Tax Credit


ACSTO logoBecause of your support over the past 19 years, ACSTO has been able to award over $165,000,000 in tuition scholarships to over 30,000 students! None of this would be possible without you.



For Tax Year 2016, a Married Couple filing jointly can claim a maximum credit of up to $2173, a Single taxpayer up to $1087, or their total tax liability—whichever is less.

If you’re an Arizona taxpayer, you can make a donation to ACSTO and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit in return! But what does that mean?

At the end of the year, if you typically get a refund, you’ll get a bigger refund. If you typically owe, you’ll owe less.

This is because a tax credit is different than a normal charitable deduction—rather than reduce your taxable income, it directly reduces your state tax liability(a.k.a. the tax you pay). For example, if your tax liability (obligation) is $1000, and you make a $750 donation to ACSTO, your liability will be reduced by $750—meaning that your tax liability will only be $250! Keep in mind, if you usually receive a refund, a tax credit makes it bigger—it is to your advantage to participate in this program.

In addition, you can make a donation all the way up until April 15th (your donation must be made prior to filing your taxes—if you are filing an extension your donation needs to be made by April 15), and still claim it for the previous tax year!

The best part? ACSTO uses your tax credit donation to award tuition scholarships for Christian School students attending one of our Partner Schools – like FourteenSix Christian Academy!

When you make a donation, you can identify a specific school, or even recommend a specific student to receive a scholarship!

Because of your support, thousands of families, who otherwise couldn’t, have been able to afford Christian Education—none of this is possible without you!

What are you waiting for? Over 70,000 Arizona taxpayers have already joined us to make Christian Education a reality for over 30,000 students! Point the way for Arizona students today!


You can donate online through the Donor Portal – selecting FourteenSix Christian Academy. If you’ve never donated to ACSTO before, you’ll have the opportunity to create an account, which enables you to view your previous donation history and print your receipt, as well as makes donating next year even quicker. If you don’t want to create a Donor Portal account, you can also Donate as a Guest.
