November 1, 2016
Dear Friends of Globe Unified School District,
We have reached the first day of November today and we are in the last two months of 2016. I wanted to take just a minute to talk about an important year-end opportunity. I want to encourage you to think about the Arizona Extracurricular Contribution Tax Credit Program. You have the ability to direct some of your state income tax dollars to support students here at Globe Unified School District. This program is the only opportunity that I know of where you can direct some of your tax dollars to a program of your choice for our students.
We have many options for you to consider in making a donation of up to $200 per individual or $400 per couple to the school district. Perhaps you are interested in supporting our outstanding Future Farmers of America program. Your donation will help students attend state and national events, purchase equipment to be used for learning more about agriculture, or providing opportunities for students to compete with other students about what they have learned. Maybe you have seen our JROTC program supporting community events around Globe and Miami. You can support that program. You might have heard about our Robotics program. We now have robotics going at all three levels, high school, middle school, and elementary. You are able to direct funds toward any of those programs. The list goes on and on. Athletics, cheerleading, National Honor Society, band, art, drama, and field trips are just a few more options available to you.
I always emphasize that these are dollars that you will pay in taxes anyway. Why not take advantage of the Arizona Extracurricular Tax Credit Contribution Program to tell your money where to go? You can pay your taxes directly to support something you want to. We have the forms for the Arizona Extracurricular Activity Tax Credit Contribution in each school office and they are available on our district website. These donations can be made any time before you file your 2016 taxes in order to benefit you on your 2016 tax year. If you need help finding the form or would like any other information about how this program works, please contact the district office at 928-402-6002. Thanks for supporting Globe Unified School District.
Jerry Jennex, Superintendent
