Donations & Fundraising

Have you made your Spirit of Sunrise donation for the 18/19 year? If not, please consider making your tax deductible contribution today! The Spirit of Sunrise campaign has raised $11,000 but we have not yet met our goal of $20,000. The FFO budget needs your help in order to continue funding student field trips, Science Day, Artists-in-Residence, Community Garden, 5th Grade Legacy Project, Lego robotics kits, Raz Kids, Reflex Math, playground equipment, Spiders and Cider, and much more. The Sunrise Drive FFO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and much of the FFO budget comes from families’ direct donations.

Please support our students!


Make a donation through our online store via MySchoolAnywhere … or drop a check payable to “Sunrise Drive FFO” in the FFO lock box in the Sunrise Office.

The suggested amount is fifty dollars ($50) per student; however, any amount is appreciated and all donations are tax deductible. Donations of $250 or more will receive a letter for tax reporting.

You can make a donation via our online MySchoolAnywhere (MSA) store. If you don’t have an MSA account, you can also donate directly via PayPal.

Donate via MSA! Donate via PayPal!

Thank you for your generosity! Please contact us with any questions.

Tax Credits

Every Arizona taxpayer has the opportunity to give two hundred dollars ($200) to CFSD instead of paying it in taxes. This is not just a deduction; it is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit so the amount reduces what you owe in state taxes. For details see the Tax Credits page.
