White Paper by Joye Kohl 2017
School Choice and Educational Equity for All Arizona Youth
For many years, the NW Maricopa County League has donated books to the Dysart Unified School District. Last year we contributed 51 books valued at nearly $1,200. The donation is made to our League by our members and thus the project does not impact any giving to the school tax credit program. Once again, the district has identified books that support the non-fiction curriculum project -- specifically for K-12 students. Contact us for more information.
Donation receipts will be provided for all members contributing to the project. Please give generously again this year, and thanks!
