Both of the Estrella schools would be appreciative of financial support through tax credits. This form is easy to fill out and anyone can participate.
*I should point out that I am NOT an expert and am sharing what I know from past experience. Please contact the Liberty Elementary School District with any questions. 623-474-6600.
Retired and not sure where to put the funds? The two schools in Estrella are Estrella Mountain Elementary and Westar Elementary. The District has a total of six schools now and all are listed on the tax credit form.
Not only can you pick which school receives funds, you also choose how the monies are used.

Interested in all of your tax credit options?
The State of Arizona Department of Revenue has a great web page that breaks down all kinds of tax credits. Please click here to see it.
I have a local friend who is quite passionate about the Working Poor Tax Credit. “What was formerly known as the Working Poor Credit is now officially known as the Credit for Donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations. This change was made in 2013 to reflect the expansion of the credit to include Foster Care organizations.” Here's the link. The state notes Qualifying Charitable Organizations provide assistance to residents of Arizona who either receive Temporary Assistance of Needy Families (TANF) benefits, are low income residents of Arizona, or are children who have a chronic illness or physical disability. The Homeless Youth Connection has a breakfast explaining this tax credit next week. Please RSVP to attend.

*Once more, I am not an expert in any of this. I highly recommend you contact the State of Arizona or the Liberty Elementary School District with any questions. The information here is provided strictly as another option to support schools in Estrella. Cheers!
