More Ways to Donate

Arizona Tax Credit Donations

Anyone who pays income tax in the state of Arizona may participate. You do not need to have children attending any school to donate. The Arizona School Tax Credit Program allows you to direct some or all of your state income tax payment to Hirsch Academy for extra curricular activities.

Taxpayers may direct up to $200 per single taxpayer or $400 per married couple filing joint to charter or public schools. And you may contribute to both public and private schools in the same year. These funds provide support for extracurricular activities such as tutoring, enrichment programs, remedial work (tutoring), field trips and guest speakers.

It’s simple – the money you donate to Hirsch Academy’s Tax Credit Program replaces dollar-for-dollar what you owe in state income taxes! You simply send in the receipt you will receive from the school along with your state tax return. The dollar amount donated may then be subtracted from the total amount.

Donors Choose

DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.
Here’s how it works: Hirsch Academy’s teachers, along with teachers across America, post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.

Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.

You’ll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $50, you’ll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.
