FAQ

Can I designate my tax credit contribution to a particular student?

No. AISSF strictly adheres to financial need criteria. AISSF policy does not allow designation of the student recipient. However, a contributor may designate which member school will receive benefit of his/her gift.


Can I direct my funds for students at a specific school?

Yes, you may designate that your funds be used for students at a specific school as long as they are an AISSF member school (Green Fields School, Phoenix Country Day School, and/or The Gregory School). Funds not designated will be divided equally among all three member schools.


If I made a gift to a member school directly, can it be counted as a tax credit?

No. To be eligible for a tax credit your contribution must be made to AISSF. Your contribution to the member school does count as a tax deduction for both your federal and state taxes since all the member schools are 501(c)(3) federally tax exempt non-profit organizations.


When can I make a tax credit contribution?

You may make a contribution to the foundation, which will qualify for the individual tax credit, at any time. Contributions received on or before April 15, 2019 are eligible for a 2018 Arizona state tax credit.


What tax forms do I use to claim the tax credits?

For the most up-to-date forms, please visit the AZ DOR website.


May I also make an additional tax credit contribution to the public schools or other charitable organizations?

Yes! Please do. There are several tax credit programs available in Arizona including credits for public schools, qualifying charitable organizations, foster care organizations, and the military relief fund. Arizona taxpayers can participate in all of them! For more information visit the AZ DOR and the AZ Department of Veterans' Services.
