    Volunteer in Paradise 

    The Volunteer in Paradise program is a unique program that matches community volunteers - those who do not have a child in one of our schools - with a participating VIP school. Visit the VIP page.

    School Chaperones

    School chaperones perform an invaluable service, providing for the safety of students attending events and on field trips. Any individual such as a parent, step-parent, legal guardian, grandparent or relative is eligible to be a school chaperone after a background screening. Chaperones will be fingerprinted and must agree to a background check. For details see the Volunteer Handbook.

  • Tax Credit

    Making a contribution to received an Arizona public education tax credit is simple. You can get a tax credit up to $200 for an individual or $400 per married couple.

    Arizona tax law allows taxpayers a credit for contributions made or fees paid to a public school for support of extracurricular activities or character education (as defined in ARS 15-719). If married taxpayers file separate returns, each spouse may claim one-half of the credit that would have been allowed on a joint return. Extracurricular activities such as sports, band, speech and debate or overnight field trips are generally not fully funded by school districts, so your donation directly supports students.
