Extra Curricular Tax Donations (ECA Tax Donations)
The fall is giving season and a great time to remind your families that they can max out their ECA on Heritage programs before the end of the year if they haven’t already.
In the last legislative session, there were a few new expenses that are now eligible to be funded with ECA money.
Here’s an updated reference document on this topic from the AZ Dept of Revenue.
Restaurant Night Fundraiser 


Junior Classical League Fundraiser 
Please download the new Box Tops app on your mobile device and avoid having to remember to clip and send Box Tops in to the school.  You simply scan your shopping receipts through the app and the funds earned are added to the amount earned for the Junior Classical League at Heritage Academy Gateway.  Please be sure to search for our school specifically when you connect with the app.  This is the only fundraiser the JCL does through the entire year, and it’s just a matter of scanning the receipts for items you are already buying.  View this 45-second video to see how it works.  Thank you for your support!   https://youtu.be/Hh94b2BvFK4
