Support PFS

Phoenix Friends School is an independent school that offers a classical education, co-curricular projects with cultural and scientific partners, health and wellness training, and service learning in the community. As an independent school, PFS can meet the demanding standards of a college prep curriculum, enriched by extracurricular programs, all rooted in Quaker values and practices.

PFS is entirely self-funded. In our first year of operation (2023-24), we estimate tuition will cover just 50% of our operating costs. To engage the best faculty and staff, to develop courses and projects for group learning, and to offer financial assistance to deserving families, we rely on donations to cover the difference. Unrestricted gifts to PFS provide mission-essential funds for every aspect of the school’s operations: faculty salaries and professional development, adjustable tuition for deserving families, class trips, service learning, and facilities and equipment.

A gift to PFS this year ensures the school will open in fall 2023 and grow on a sustainable model into the future, to a point where tuition payments cover approximately 85% of operating expenses. As with other top-rated independent schools, philanthropy will continue to make the difference between basic survival and a well-rounded learning experience both inside the classroom and in the community.

We invite you to consider PFS as you support educational opportunities that include the long-running tradition of Quaker education. In 2023, the tradition comes to Arizona.

Arizona Tuition Tax Credit Program

Arizona offers tax payers an opportunity to provide tuition assistance to deserving students at independent schools. In Arizona, you can redirect a portion of your state tax dollars to a private school and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on your state taxes.

Phoenix Friends School will offer tuition assistance to multiple students thanks to many donors in Arizona who make a tax credit contribution in 2022 through PFS.

Here are the steps to follow:

  • Determine your tax liability close to year-end 2022 or close to filing your returns in 2023. PFS will provide a Tax Credit Contribution Form and ask you to return it to the School by April 1, 2023.
  • PFS will submit your Contribution Form to TOPS for Kids on your behalf. (TOPS is a DOR-approved School Tuition Organization).
  • TOPS will issue you a receipt directly.

The impact: Your generous contribution will go directly to the PFS Scholarship Fund for students with qualifying financial need.

We greatly appreciate your support deserving students at PFS!
