What is it?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely-recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year.

How is APESF involved?
As those who’ve participated in the past know, Arizona allows taxpayers to make a private school tax credit donation (up to $1,183 for individuals and $2,365 for married couples for 2020) and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit against money owed to the state. In addition, 100% of every donation received by APESF on 12.1.2020 in support of #GivingTuesday will be used for tuition scholarships for students!
NOTE: Online donations must be made on 12/1, and check donations must be received by APESF or postmarked on 12/1 in order to be processed as #GivingTuesday donations. This promotion is for Private School Tax Credit donations up to the 2020 annual allowable maximums only. Charitable gifts to the organization will be used to support students in other ways.
