Principal's Message

Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go.

Donate Now!

Steps in Donating:
1. What is it?
Arizona Law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in our public school. That's not just a deduction, it's a tax credit-it reduces what you owe in the state taxes, dollar -for-dollar.
 
2. Who can benefit from this law?
All Arizona tax payers are eligible: you do not have to have children within the school district to benefit from this law. You can now donate through April 15 each year and claim your donation on the previous or current tax year.
 
3. What qualifies?
By law, only donations to extracurricular activities, such as tutoring, athletics, band, orchestra, field trips, special programs and more qualify for the tax credit. Donations must be made to the school district, but directly towards a specific activity at a specific school.
 
4. How do I donate?
To make a donations in person or by mail: simply complete and print the form: Tax Credit Donation Form. You may also contact the District Business Office to obtain the form. Your contribution can be delivered in person or mailed, along with your check, to Gadsden Elementary School District #32.
