Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization (ACSTO) Donations and Scholarships

If you’re an Arizona taxpayer, you can make a donation to ACSTO ( and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit in return! ACSTO uses your tax credit donation to award tuition scholarships for Christian School students attending one of their Partner Schools like Pilgrim! When you make a donation, you can identify a specific school, or even recommend a specific student to receive a scholarship!

2023 Donation Amounts

For Tax Year 2023, a married couple filing jointly can claim a maximum credit of up to $2,609, a single taxpayer up to $1,307, or their total tax liability, whichever is less. These amounts are the total of Arizona's two Private School Tax Credits—Original and Overflow.

When giving to ACSTO, donors can give up to $1,308/$655 (married/single) toward the Original Tax Credit. Any donation above this amount will then go toward the Overflow Tax Credit, up to a maximum of an additional $1,301/$652. When you donate through ACSTO's Donor Portal, it automatically totals the amounts for Original and Overflow so you don't have to!
