In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, #GT wants the giving community to […]

Scholarship Application Update!

by admin June 17, 2013

We would like to take this time to update all parents, students and school’s on our progress on the many scholarship applications we received this year. As many know, we turned off the on-line application process a couple days after the 6/1 deadline. This was to help us collect all necessary information in order to complete the application review process. We looked for incomplete information, and sent out emails to folks to get the completed information. Our on-line application process was turned back on-line starting 6/16. For those that did not get their application in, please do so as quickly […]

You Still Have Time – Till April 15th

by admin March 21, 2013

Do you know that you can still get 2012 tax credit for donations made up to April 15th? That’s right! One of the reasons that most people struggle with making donations is the amount of time that in-between the donation and receiving credit.  We are very lucky in Arizona. Our legislature recognized that and we now can make donations at the beginning of the year just before you file your taxes (and it still counts that donation for the previous year).  This changes the donation deadline to April 15th instead of December 31st, or prior to when you file your […]
