Autism Donation Options

According to the CDC, autism impacts 1 in 59 children, and that is not counting those with similar challenges. Unfortunately, not all needs can be met in a traditional school, and that’s where we come in. Abbie School is a place of hope and flexibility, meeting our student’s personal and academic needs in a peaceful and beautiful setting. We offer students an opportunity to create friendships, experience education, grow their interests and discover new passions in a way that makes sense to them. Children with disabilities are full of gifts, just waiting to be cultivated. Link arms with us, and help our students lead fulfilling, independent and productive lives; full of love, friendship and hope. Please consider our autism donation options below for your generous gift.

For families of children with special needs, even small changes can make a huge impact. Imagine a child too sensory sensitive to join their family for dinner or at the movies. A child who is unable to go into a grocery store or out in the community. Imagine a child who can hold it together at school, but then disintegrates and suffers a melt down at home each day. For people with a developmental disability, the world we live in can be a major source of distress and discomfort. In some cases, the brain may overreact to sensory stimuli. Other times, it may not react enough. This makes it harder to learn, to have and maintain friendships, to function in a family, get and hold a job, and to be fully included in life. An effective method of treating and overcoming sensory processing disorder (SPD), is with the use of a sensory room. These spaces are designed to provide opportunities to decompress and remediate sensory challenges in a way that will help individuals with SPD better function in the world. Daily access to a sensory room helps students access curriculum, learn coping skills, increase positive relationships, and access self- regulation techniques. With a fundraising goal of $20,000.00, your support is crucial to our effort! The project entails the build out of two spaces: a large motor lab, complete with swings, rock climbing wall, monkey bars, etc. (initial sketch pictured left), and a dark sensory room with, weighted blankets, bean bag chairs, led lights, mermaid fabric, projection and fiber optics. Freedom by Design, a student-led, community outreach construction activity, affiliated with the University of Arizona School of Architecture, has taken on the design and build of the sensory motor lab.

When tax credits are given in the name of the school, we can help the students who need it the most.
The Arizona private school tax credit, is a redirection of the state taxes you already owe (or have already paid). It is a way for you to decide how your tax dollars are spent, and an opportunity to make a significant impact, and investment in the lives of others.
In the 2021 tax year, you can redirect up to $2213 if you are married and filing jointly, and up to $1107 if you are filing single. These funds are given to a School Tuition Organization (STO), which is a non-profit organization, regulated by the Arizona Department of Revenue. STOs exist for the purpose of turning tax credits into scholarships.
Upon receipt of your tax credit, STOs like Arizona Tuition Connection, provide you with a tax receipt and then notify Abbie of the tax credit gift. Your gift is then sent to the school in the name of a deserving child, funding a scholarship and changing a life.
Similar to an individual, in Arizona C and S corporations are now able to redirect their corporate tax liability to schools like Abbie. Corporations can make a huge impact for low income or disabled students.

An endowment is a permanent, designated fund from which only earned income is spent; the principal is invested under the guidance of the Board of Directors of The Abbie School.

An endowment is a gift in perpetuity, with the interest earned directed toward the goals & operation of The Abbie School; or as designated by the donor. While our ongoing expenses are largely met through the Annual Fund and tuition, Abbie School’s future depends on the receipt of endowments from those who support our school, and the specialized education it provides to students with neurodevelopmental disorders.
