What a difference a year makes! This year we received over 200% more scholarship applications than 2011. As a board member and volunteer for Az4Education it makes me proud to award as many scholarships to deserving students and families as possible. After reviewing ALL of the applications we have selected the scholarship recipients.
Email notification to all scholarship recipients was sent out July 16! If you received the email, congratulations.
If you did not receive an email notification, we truly wish that we could have done more. With the overwhelming number of applicants this year, we revisited our budget and made as much of an increase as we could.
Our promise to everyone. The volunteer staff will continue to increase our efforts in gathering as many donations as possible. We would like nothing more than to increase our scholarship budget even more (it is based on donations received).
If you would like to help – you can help spread the word about our organization and how we are helping. Point your friends and family to Az4Education to make a donation (to the school, to your child or to the general fund). Remember that if the donator is from the state of Arizona, the tax credit is dollar for dollar. We strive to have the lowest over-head and return the maximum dollar to the scholarship.
