AZ Tax Credits

Arizona School Tax Credits Make a Difference for Students!

Under Arizona law, a state tax credit is available for contributions to support extracurricular activities in public schools. Generally, any optional, non-credit, educational activity that supplements the educational program of the schools are considered to be extracurricular and eligible for tax credit funding. Tax credits are NON-REFUNDABLE per the policy of the State of Arizona.

Please Click Here for instructions on how to contribute!

Once you have submitted your tax credit payment via the Gilbert Public Schools website, please ensure that you have set up an Eleyo family account. Next, please call the Community Education Business Office at 480-892-9089 x0 BEFORE submitting the registration in Eleyo, for further instructions.  Please submit the Tax Credit donation for the exact amount of the course, since our online system DOES NOT hold credits on the account.

The Community Education Programs that are eligible to pay using tax credit are GPS Enrichment, GYA (Gilbert Youth Athletics) and Elementary Summer School.

Enrichment Programs

Welcome to high-quality student enrichment programs at Gilbert Public Schools! We offer a diverse selection of programs intended to encourage students to explore new educational opportunities.
