Fundraising

Odyssey provides a rich curriculum that incorporates off campus field experiences at each grade level. Each year the money raised from our school fundraisers is funneled directly into subsidizing these field trips. We choose our scholar’s field experiences based upon their overall contribution to our curriculum, not based upon price. Because of this, we work very hard to raise money throughout the school year to make these a possibility for every scholar. For more information on Fundraising, please contact Michelle Lemus at gyevents@topamail.com

Cookie Dough Fundraising Icon

Cookie Dough

The Odyssey Preparatory Academy elementary campuses holds two major fundraisers each year. Typically, we sell cookie dough in the fall. The company offers a variety of delicious products to select from. The products come in frozen and is distributed at our campus.

This fundraiser is essential to our field trips. There will be a kickoff assembly and announcements made regarding the order deadline and delivery date. The excitement is high and scholars enjoy working towards the incentive program.

Every order helps our school. Your support with these fundraisers is greatly appreciated.

Running Icon

Fun Run

The Odyssey Preparatory Academy elementary campuses holds two fundraisers each year. Typically, we participate in a fun run in the spring. Scholars collect pledges from friends and family and participate in an unforgettable assembly where they run, walk, dance and limbo around the campus in celebration of the pledges they’ve collected.

There will be a kickoff assembly with character days encouraging a fit-lifestyle and focusing on helping scholars see their individual greatness. Scholars set a goal of laps they wish to run and pledges can be made online. No pledge is too small. Your support with these fundraisers is greatly appreciated.

Volunteer Program

Volunteering Icon

Volunteering

The Odyssey Preparatory Academy welcomes and appreciates its volunteers. We offer family members multiple opportunities and capacities in which to share their talents. All volunteers must see the front office staff to complete a background check. Parents requesting to be a chaperone on field trips MUST have completed a background check. Only parents, legal guardians or Odyssey staff may chaperone field trips. At Odyssey we ask that all volunteers come to the classroom or field trip with a clear focus and without distraction. Therefore, Odyssey requests that all volunteers, including field trip chaperones, take care to arrange for child care for younger siblings. Odyssey does not offer a child-care program for volunteers and does not permit younger children to come along with parents while they are in a volunteer capacity.

Please contact Michelle Lemus (gyevents@topamail.com) directly for more information on how you can participate!

Please refer to the Parent/Scholar Handbook for further information

The gift of your time volunteering, your tax credit or your fundraising efforts are all greatly appreciated and equally important.

Charitable Contributions

Arizona State Tax Credit Logo

Arizona State Tax Credit

Arizona law allows taxpayers to receive a dollar for dollar tax credit of up to $200 for individual filers and up to $400 for married filers for contributions made to The Odyssey Preparatory Academy. You can claim the tax credit when filing your Arizona State Income Tax return.

Contributions can be made by completing the Tax Credit Form and include a check for the amount of your contribution. Checks should be made payable to The Odyssey Preparatory Academy.

What is a tax credit? A tax credit is not a tax deduction. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the actual tax owed. For example, if you owe $900 in state income taxes and you donate $400 to a public school for extracurricular activities, you may subtract the $400 from your tax bill and pay the state just $500.

Do I have to donate the full $200 or $400? You may donate any amount but you will only receive the tax credit for the $200 or $400 limit. You may donate in installments during the calendar year, or donate it at one time.

Do I have to have a child enrolled at Odyssey? No, any individual who pays Arizona State income tax can donate. Anyone with or without children, married or single, can take advantage of this tax credit.

We are encouraging all our families to include The Odyssey Family of Schools (The Odyssey Preparatory Academy and The Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies) as one of your yearly charitable donations. If you donate $400 to Odyssey, and you are eligible for reimbursement, you will receive $400 back from the state of Arizona. If you owe the state taxes this donation will reduce the amount you owe by $400. A contributor can also deduct this donation on the federal tax form.

What to do:
1. Look at your tax returns. Find the “Balance of Tax” line: Arizona From 140 line 26, Arizona Form 140A line 22, or Arizona From 140PY line 22.

2. If you have a “Balance of Tax” due, you could have contributed up to $400 for married couples filing jointly and up to $200 for single filers

3. Contact your accountant or tax advisor as soon as possible to see how much you can contribute for 2016.
