Have you made your tax credit contribution to CJ KIDS' FUND yet for 2021? 

You have the opportunity to donate up to $200 as an individual (or $400 as a couple) directly to our Clarkdale and Jerome communities’ kids at Clarkdale-Jerome School. Instead of going to the state’s general fund, these dollars go directly to our kids through the CJSD tax credit fund program!

And you don't have to live in the district to participate. Grandparents, friends, and families who pay Arizona state taxes can also help our students' programs by re-directing a portion of their taxes directly to CJ KIDS' FUND.

Odyssey of the Mind, field trips, sports activities, sporting equipment, music, science and technology exploration, nature studies! These programs and activities all thrive for our kids with your tax credit funds.
