About CCSTO



Cochise Christian School Tuition Organization (CCSTO) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and was incorporated in 2002.

Our purpose is to assist children in receiving an Arizona tuition scholarship to attend the Christian school of their choice. 

CCSTO is authorized by the State of Arizona to offer the four tax credit programs currently available:  

           Individual, Overflow/Switcher, and Corporate Low Income and Corporate Disabled/Displaced. 

Generous donors give to CCSTO and receive a dollar-to-dollar tax credit.  The donations are used for tuition scholarships
for K-12 students attending Christian schools in Arizona. 

Don't miss the opportunity to take advantage of the private school tax credit, receive a federal deduction, and donate
to a child's education - all at the same time!

If you are a Corporation, you may be eligible to take a Corporate Private Tax Credit.  Please review the information on the
Corporate Tax Credit tab.

Arizona Revised Statute - A.R.S. §43-1603(C):
  • A school tuition organization cannot award, restrict or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of a donor's recommendation.
  • A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependents.
