Your annual $45 tax-deductible membership contribution allows us to help the school in a variety of ways while minimizing the number of other fundraisers throughout the year. All parents, paid members or not, may attend our monthly meetings and/or join a committee. Or, simply be a contributing member and stay informed through ParentSquare and Facebook updates.
|Annual Teacher Fund (ATF)
Arizona charter schools receive less public funding than district schools. BASIS Flagstaff is committed to maintaining the highest standards of excellence. Invest in our teachers by making a tax-deductible donation to the ATF. These funds are used to recruit and retain the highest quality teachers through performance-based bonuses. 100% of the funds raised go directly to BASIS Flagstaff teachers. ATF donations may be made at any time. Watch for ATF drives during the Fall Week of Giving in November and Spring Week of Giving in April.
|Arizona School Tax Credit
Arizona School Tax Credit is separate from BASIS ATF. The Arizona School Tax Credit Program allows Arizona taxpayers to contribute up to $200 for individuals and $400 for married couples (filing jointly) per year to support academic and extracurricular activities at a public or charter school and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their Arizona state income tax. Contributions made after December 31st but on or before April 15th may be claimed in either the previous tax year or in the year the contribution was made.

Box Tops can be found on a variety of products such as Ziploc bags, General Mills cereals, Kleenex tissues, and many others. Please neatly clip and save Box Tops throughout the year. They can be dropped off in the collection box at the front desk at any time. Be on the lookout for the new digital Box Tops label on certain products as well. Credit is for our school is digitally earned by scanning your receipt into the Box Tops mobile app. Eventually, all Box Tops will be “clipped” using the mobile app, but for now we can collect Box Tops both ways.
|Little Free Libraries
BASIS Flagstaff and the Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance have partnered together to bring five Little Free Libraries to the downtown area. Little Free Library book exchanges are hand-crafted structures that facilitate a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. BASIS Flagstaff will be involved in this project for the Flagstaff community from start to finish. Several BASIS Flagstaff families stepped forward with donations to cover the costs of materials, construction, and installation while students have helped with the design, construction, and book drives to stock the libraries. BASIS Flagstaff will continue to collect books to maintain the libraries in the future as well.
