Support the High School with an Easy-To-Do Tax Credit

If I give money, I can get it back later?

Yes. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar refund of the amount you are donating. The Arizona Kids Tax Credit Program allows every Arizona income tax-payer to contribute to an Arizona Public School. The good news is that GateWay Early College benefits from this tax credit!

Many people either owe state taxes or they receive a refund at the end of the year. If you have to pay state taxes, why not give your money to a program you know? If you will be receiving a refund in your state taxes, this money comes back to you in the form of a state tax refund. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

How much can I donate?

You can give up to the maximum allowable tax credit:

  • Single: $200
  • Married filing jointly: $400

How do I sign up!

Complete the online donation form or make your check out to GateWay Early College High School and drop it off in the ECHS front office up to April 15 of the current year, or send to:

GateWay Early College High School
108 North 40th Street
Phoenix, AZ 85034

You will receive a receipt by mail for your contribution.

Remember that you can donate as little as $25 or as much as $200 if you’re single or $400 if you’re married. If you owe state taxes, it will pay your debt. If you don’t owe, you get it dollar for dollar back in your Arizona state tax refund.

Why Donate?

The tax credit supports extracurricular activities for our students. GWECHS are among the most disadvantaged in Maricopa County yet our school has a 0% dropout rate and a 98% college acceptance rate. In past years your donations have enabled students to attend plays & operas, participate in after-school sports clubs, book clubs and SAT study clubs, visit universities and enjoy other experiences that have enriched their lives. THANK YOU!
