Support our programs with your az state tax credit
Your support through the AZ State Tax Credit program is more important now than ever. This year has been difficult for everyone, and the CDDP programs are no different. Due to Covid restrictions, the Choir, Dance, Drama and Musical Theater programs are not able to host any performances, which are our primary source of income for the current and next school year. So, we are asking our supporters, if you are able, to consider donating your AZ state tax credit to one of our programs. Check out the images below for simple, step by step instructions on how to donate. Thank you in advance for your help!
