Sippel’s Spotlight 11/28

Today is give back Tuesday, please see the ways that you can support San Tan Charter School and San Tan Montessori below;

The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School’s goal of $82,000.00. The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education, which each student participates in and Physical Education, in which students participate in daily. It also provides weekly Library time for our students. The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.

This year San Tan Montessori School’s annual Tax Credit Donation Goal is $10,000.00. It is extremely important that we meet this goal to be able to continue to provide your kiddos with programs such as Music Education, Physical Education, and weekly Library time for our students. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200.

In addition, if you are interested in giving more, please consider the private school tax credit. Our Private Montessori School gives out around $50,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $500, you can deduct that $500 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may contribute up to $1,090. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $545. Donations can be dropped off in the front office, please make checks out to San Tan Montessori and put in the memo line Private School Tax Credit.
