The Arizona Leadership Foundation proudly provides scholarship assistance to private schools and Lexie’s Law schools throughout Arizona with no preference to religious or political affiliation. We believe parents should have a choice when it comes to the education of their children.
Under these programs (A.R.S. 43-1183), Class C Corporations and Insurance Carriers that owe Arizona corporate income tax or insurance premium taxes can redirect a portion, or their entire tax obligation to school tuition organizations (such as the Arizona Leadership Foundation). These school tuition organizations then award K-12 scholarships to students qualifying for the federal government’s free or reduced lunch program or the disabled/displaced program. The corporation, in turn, will receive a 100% tax credit for every dollar it donates. Participating corporations redirect funds they must already pay to the state, enabling them to help low-income children achieve greater educational excellence at NO COST to the corporation. As a result, the program is paving the way for an educated workforce that will greatly contribute to the betterment of our communities.
