AZTO invites you to become directly involved in improving education in Arizona.

If you are an Arizona taxpayer, the Arizona Private School Tuition Tax Credit allows you to give to AZTO and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your Arizona Income Taxes. AZTO then issues tuition awards to eligible students attending one of AZTO’s participating schools. For a 90 second overview on Arizona’s Tuition Tax Credit Program, see AZTO’s Vimeo Video.
