It also is the month that most folks get their taxes completed. Are your taxes done already? If so, that is great.

Important Information and a “New Policy” Change

by admin February 4, 2014

To all AZ4Education Community Members: Another year is over, we have had our review and we are doing well. Again, we are witnessing some extremely strong results in the # of donations and total amount this year! That is great news. We received a communication reminder from the ADOR about recommended donations and the potential for “swapping” or reciprocity. This is when one or more families are providing a recommended donation in a students name for each other students (or within a circle of families). This is against the regulations. Even if you did not intend for that donation to […]

Don’t Forget – You Still Have Time Until April 15th

Our legislature recognized that.  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 taxes, whichever […]

Happy 2014! Looking back…

by admin January 8, 2014

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday season. Another year is officially over. How many of you have made the mistake when writing the year? I have!

We are under 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving. Time for family and friends to get together to enjoy each others company and give thanks for all of the wonderful blessing this past year has brought. It is a very special time! What follows Thanksgiving is normally Black Friday and Cyber Monday – the retailers way to kick off the holiday season. GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and kick off the giving season. The second annual GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, #GT wants the giving community to […]
