What is CTSO?


Arizona's Catholic Tuition Support Organization (CTSO) provides scholarships and tuition assistance to Catholic School students by using funds generated through the Arizona Private School Tuition Tax Credit Law (A.R.S. 43-1089) as well as through private and corporate contributions.

Contribute to CTSO and Support Catholic Education at Sacred Heart

You can help support the tuition costs of students at Sacred Heart Catholic School by making a personal or corporate contribution through CTSO using money you would have to pay in taxes anyway. By doing so, community members assist families of K-8 students who do no have the means to pay for private education. 100% of the scholarships awarded are through a need basis. Scholarships are awarded regardless of race, creed, gender, ethnicity, etc.

At Sacred Heart Catholic School, 63% of the students are on scholarship. An assignment of your Arizona State Tax liability to Sacred Heart Catholic School through CTSO would greatly assist our students and their families to continue their education in a Catholic environment.


The State of Arizona allows Arizona Taxpayers to assign their State Tax liability to the Catholic Tuition Support Organization. The 2018 individual tax year credit maximum limits are $1,107 for single returns and $2,213 for joint returns. 2018 tax year contributions must be received by April 15, 2019.

To make a personal or corporate contribution online please visit www.ctso-tucson.org/contribute. Please remember to indicate Sacred Heart Catholic School as the recipient of your contribution.

Thank you for your support!
