CE——School Tax Credit——–Help Children & Animals!


Arizona Taxpayers Pledge $$$$$ to Help Schools, Receive a Tax Credit off their Tax Burden and Help Children & Animals at the same time! Learn more…

This Tax Credit Project functions just like a walkathon fundraiser does. The difference is that, instead of pledging $$$ for each mile walked, animal lovers are pledging to donate $$$ for each animal spayed or neutered. By using the power of your connections to friends, family and social media channels, your school receives a donation for each completed spay or neuter.

Animal lovers are pledging to donate $10 to schools for every dog or cat that is spayed or neutered through your promotional efforts between now and December 31st, 2016! The donated funds will help children, schools & animals all at the same time! Thank you for wanting to make a positive difference in your community! This specific project helps Title 1 schools.

Arizona tax law allows taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 (or $400 per married couple) if they contribute to extracurricular activities in public schools and the taxpayer does not even need to “itemize” on their taxes to claim the tax credit! Extracurricular activities are generally not fully funded by school districts. In many schools, especially Title 1 schools, families struggle to pay the fees that allow their children to participate in enrichment activities such as sports, band, speech & debate, or overnight field trips.

The great news is that this Community Project helps local schools get the money they need while solving a community problem! Animal overpopulation costs Arizona taxpayers thousands of dollars and creates needless suffering for our vulnerable animal companions. You can help solve a societal problem, alleviate animal suffering, educate the next generation of animal lovers, and support enrichment programs & extracurricular events for children all at the same time!

  1. Do the schools need to be Title 1? I work in a school that is classified as low income but not specifically Title 1 (all the other schools in the district are Title 1 though). Actually, never mind as this is specific to Maricopa and we are in Pinal.

    1. Hello, Jessica

      We are happy to get the word out to help any animal get spayed or neutered in any county! Clare at CommunityCasue.org

  2. Hello,

    I am pledging $200 to any Title 1 high school that accepts the Dog and Cat Spay & Neuter Challenge! Just send in a reply to my comment if your school would like to accept my $200 donation.

    In return for my $200 donation, your high school promises to get the word out about local spay & neuter resources by telling people at your school and by sharing the information with the community through your social media channels. You will get $10 for each completed spay or neuter that any community members credit to your school’s effort to get the word out. You have until December 31st, 2016 to meet the spay/neuter number you commit to achieving. Then, there are more donation dollars available to you for next year 2017!!!

    If you know other Title 1 schools that may want to participate, please let them know. I have lots of other friends who care about children and also care about animals. There are more donation $$$$$ dollars available to help Title 1 schools! Simply ask Title 1 schools to send in their spay/neuter pledge numbers that they can commit to as a comment below and we will help find them donors who will accept their commitment and pledge $$$$$ to their Title 1 school!

    If you know of any other individuals who may want to donate dollars to schools, help animals and get the school tax credit, will you lease let them know that they can help children & animals through this program?

    I would like to get this donation to your Title 1 high school before December 31st, 2016 so that I can get the School Tax Credit off of my 2016 taxes!

    If your Title 1 high school would like to accept my donation pledge and my challenge, please reply to my donation pledge comment with the name of your high school and the necessary contact information so I can send the donation dollars directly to your high school. Thanks for making a difference in the lives of children & animals! Who will accept my challenge? 🙂
