School Tuition Organization
The School Tuition Organization (STO) receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition grants to Iowa school children, who, in turn, use those grants to attend one of the schools represented by the STO (All Holy Family schools are represented by the STO). At least 90 percent of the money received by the STO must go back out in tuition grants.
As an Iowa taxpayer, you can contribute to the STO and receive an Iowa tax credit equal to 65 percent of your contribution. The amount you contribute qualifies as a charitable donation on your federal tax return as well. To date, donors to the STO have saved more than $11 million on their Iowa income taxes.
