CEA: How it Works

Catholic education plays a critical role in our students’ lives helping to form their faith and preparing them for lives of services to others. Thanks to those that participated last year, 193 students (nearly half of our student body) at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic School received tuition assistance from Catholic Education Arizona (CEA) this school year. The need for the coming school year is far greater.

As you know, the Arizona state tax credit program is an easy way to help families with demonstrated financial need and costs ZERO dollars to participate. Please give prayerful thought toward making a contribution this year of any amount up to $2,134 for married filers and $1,067 for individuals through CEA designating OLMC as the recipient.

You will be joining hundreds of OLMC families and friends in supporting this vital program for Catholic education. Redirecting your tax dollars gives deserving OLMC students with financial need a solid Catholic education, a path to higher education, and a promising future.

We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real and lasting impact in the lives of those students who are still in need. To see how it works, watch the video above. Thank you for your continued support and friendship.
