STO – The Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future School Tuition Organization awarded nearly $4.1 million in 2014 in need-based tuition grants to almost 3,200 students, representing over 32% of the students attending Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Dubuque. Families are eligible for STO assistance if their taxable income is at or below 300% of the federal poverty rate for the previous tax year. The STO grants are made possible through the support of hundreds of donors across the Archdiocese. These donors not only receive the satisfaction of helping thousands of students, but also receive an Iowa income tax credit equal to 65% of their total donation. In addition, their entire gift is eligible for federal income tax deductibility. The goal for the 2014 tax year is $5.7 million. Donor applications, as well as a complete explanation of the program are available at www.ourfaithsto.org. This program benefits all of the Archdiocese, please support and share this program with others.
