CTSO Referral Plan
CTSO Referral Plan Goal:
To increase contributions to help meet the scholarship recipient needs
To increase the current percentage of funding available for families
More Funds Available=Bigger % of Funding
For current school year Referral Plan participants who have NOT completed a FAIR, Inc. application for a regular CTSO scholarship, the following forms must be completed and sent to Julieta Gonzalez directly, preferably by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW TO GET STARTED:
School families need to register to participate in the Referral Plan and to obtain their Referral Plan Number. Register once only and use this same Referral Plan Number each year.
To register for a Referral Plan Number, go to: www.ctso-tucson.org and look on the homepage for "Referral Plan". Click on "Learn More" and create a profile to obtain a unique RP#.
Contact as many potential taxpayers/contributors as possible, especially those who may have a state tax liability-friends, family, co-workers, neighbors.
Give the potential taxpayer/contributor your Referral Plan Number to give to CTSO when they make their dollar for dollar tax credit donation.
Your unique Referral Plan Number will help CTSO track the funds received through the Referral Plan.
Referral Funds will be added to the overall funds available for each school and help increase the percentage of the financial need addressed by CTSO for the verified need.
For any questions, on the Referral Plan, please email Julieta Gonzalez at email@example.com or contact the CTSO office at (520) 838-2534.
