Why Support BFCS?
When you donate to our school, you will be helping to provide students with top-notch extracurricular activities! If you would like, you are able to designate what campus you would like to make a donation to. If you choose to designate a campus, your generous gift will be applied to the area of greatest need within our extra-curricular programming. If you make a general donation to Benjamin Franklin Charter School (you do not designate a campus), your donation will be applied to the area of greatest need within our school-wide extracurricular programing. This is for general contributions, and donations made through this website cannot be associated with a specific student.
When you donate to our school's extracurricular programs you are eligible to receive a Tax Credit; a Tax Credit is, in effect, a full refund of your money. The State of Arizona allows residents to donate and claim up to $200 (individual) or $400 (married, filing jointly) per year per household as a tax credit. Individuals who live in Arizona can donate to a child's school and claim it as a Tax Credit - this includes parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, and family friends (excludes businesses). *Please note: Businesses do not qualify for this Tax Credit.*
Tax credit donations for the 2021 tax year can be made until April 15, 2022.
Founded in 1995, Benjamin Franklin Charter School was one of Arizona’s first charter schools. Our mission is to offer students a well-rounded education with proven superior academics, exceptional programs, time-honored values, and a high level of parental participation.
