About Us

Since 1998, Catholic Education Arizona has awarded more than 148,000 scholarships and raised over $313 million dollars for underserved students attending one of 38 schools in the Diocese of Phoenix.

Arizona’s Private Education Tax Credit and Corporate Low Income Tax Credit empowers individuals and corporations to choose how their tax dollars are spent and greatly impact Catholic schools. You can be one of thousands to direct your tax liability to the General Fund (serving schools with highest need) or the school(s) of your choice.

Become a Corporate Partner with Catholic Education Arizona and turn your Arizona State Tax Liability into an investment in education and the future of Arizona's children. C&S Corporations and Insurance companies who pay premium tax are eligible to participate. You may direct 100% of your Corporate State Tax Liability to CEA on behalf of our schools. Thank you for helping change lives one scholarship at a time.

The CEA staff hosted an Ice Cream Social for Principals and Finance Personnel and distributed the first payment of $4 million at the event. A great way to kick-off the school year, and a tasty one at that!
BBVA President, Brad Parker visited the CEA Offices for a check presentation and meet and greet with students from Xavier College Preparatory, St. Agnes, and Most Holy Trinity. BBVA is transforming banking to put the world's opportunities in your hands, and we are grateful for their support of the Corporate Tax Credit.
