We want to thank everyone who contributed to the two Paulo Freire ‘Tax Credit Campaigns’ in 2015. PFFS-Downtown received $7,225 and PFFS-University received $13,280 – in 2015 AZ Tax Credit contributions. If you did not make a contribution before the December 31st, 2015 midnight deadline you can still make a contribution to a public school (and use it as 2015 tax credit) as long as you make the contribution before you file your 2015 AZ tax return. An individual can receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction of their taxes up to $200 (and a couple filing jointly can receive this dollar-for-dollar reduction of their taxes up to $400). So if you missed the 12/31 deadline you still have the opportunity to support the amazing programming at these two schools if you make a contribution before you file.
Because of the generosity of our fabulous Paulo Freire community we will be able to continue to provide fee-based extra-curricular programming to every student regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Thank you!
Speaking of amazing programming – the Spring 2016 Intersession options will be announced to students at the end of next week and Intersession ‘Choice Forms ‘ will be sent home with students on Friday (2/5). These options will also be posted on each school’s Intersession web page next Friday by the time that the Weekly Update goes out (about 1:30 pm). Watch for that at either Downtown Intersession or University Intersession.
If you did not get a chance to view our ‘Thank You’ video when it was posted on 12/22 – here it is again:
