When you donate to our school, you will be helping to provide students with top notch extra-curricular activities! If you would like, you are able to designate what program you would like to make a donation to. If you make a general donation to Benjamin Franklin Charter School - Crismon (you do not designate a program), your donation will be applied to the area of greatest need within our school wide extra-curricular programing. *Please note that 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 extra-curricular 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. Anyone who lives 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!
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.
