Ultrasound for Life

For more information
 

The Knights of Columbus works together as an organization to purchase ultrasound machines for qualifying pregnancy centers.

 

 

Save lives by helping women choose life by giving them the opportunity to view their unborn children on ultrasound machines at pro-life pregnancy centers. This initiative is funded by Knights of Columbus state and local councils with matching grants from the Supreme Council’s Culture of Life Fund.  The Knights of Columbus works together as an organization to purchase ultrasound machines for qualifying pregnancy centers. After the state and/or local council raises 50% of the cost, the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council will provide the other 50% to complete funding for the purchase of an ultrasound.

Knights of Columbus Our Lady of the Rosary Council 13272 Scholarship Fund

CLICK HERE for the CTSO Donation Form
 

 
Knights of Columbus, Our Lady of the Rosary Council #13272, is your parish Knights council.  In support of furthering Catholic education, we have partnered with Tucson office of the Arizona Catholic Tuition Support Organization (CTSO) and have created a referral program (RP) number donor's can use when making their tax free contributions to CTSO.  With the referral number, the donations are held by CTSO in a special account that can only be directed by Council #13272. 
 
Our goal is to support the parishioners of St Mark with financial assistance for their children to attend Catholic schools. In just three short years that we've begun this partnership, we've raised over $90,000, supported 48 children which assisted 24 families.
 
When you are faced with an Arizona state tax obligation, and  considering making that tax payment to the State of Arizona, consider redirecting that payment to AZ -CTSO for the benefit of the St Mark RP #1438.  You could receive a tax credit of 100% of the money you donate.  Please see your tax professional for specific guidance. 
 
The Mission Statement of AZ-CTSO: 

Arizona’s Catholic Tuition Support Organization promotes education by providing tuition assistance to K-12 students in private schools using funds generated by the Arizona tax credit programs.

The Vision Statement of AZ-CTSO: 

Education will be available, accessible, and affordable to children who want the opportunity to attend a private school.
 
Complete the attached CTSO Support Form, with the St Mark OV referral plan number already pre-filled and mail it into CTSO at the address on the form.  Keep a copy for your tax records and use RP1438 on your state tax form to donate your state tax liability funds.

The deadline for next school year 2020/2021 scholarships is TBA.
