Corporate Tax Credits and Philanthropy
Watch our 1 minute video -STOP Inequality in Eduation
Americas Scholarship Konnection, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit company that offers a K-12 Private School Scholarship program that includes a corporate state tax credit which typically (depending on the state) offsets nearly 100% of the dollars contributed to the fund by ABC corporation.
Key advantages to this tax credit program vs. ABC corporation simply paying state taxes include:
Marketing / Public Relations / Goodwill “talking point” – ABC corp. funded X amount in scholarships (particularly attractive to companies that may want to improve their community good will)
Employee Benefit– ABC corp. can steer middle income and below employees to have their children participate in our scholarship program (provided eligibility criteria is met)
Improved Employee Productivity– childcare challenge / “virtual classroom” distractions are lower w/ private vs. public school due to more predictable scheduling (ex: COVID closures)
Enhanced Future Labor Market- improved educational outcomes yield a stronger and more skilled workforce of tomorrow
Very Low to Zero Cost– nearly 100% (varies by state) of dollars contributed to the program are returned to ABC corp. via a state tax credit / rebate

Helping Enable all Americans to have Freedom of Educational Choice regardless of Zip Code or Economic Status
We are a Non Profit Organization dedicated to granting scholarships for K-12 private education. These scholarships go to primarily low income families or children with disabilities as identified by an IEP or children that have been displaced in foster care.
As a result of donations we receive, we are able to provide this funding to families who would otherwise not have the freedom to choose the best school for their child.
With the conversation in our country about inequality, here at ASK we are working to make things better. We literally work to level the playing field for kids starting at Kindergarten to make sure that every family can send their child to the school of their choice, one child at a time. We are passionate about this and it reflects in everything we do.
Thank you so much for your generous donation to my child’s educational needs. Choosing which type of education my child receives is a top priority for me, and I sincerely appreciate people like you who make that choice possible.
I know that we will not take this scholarship lightly, and we will work hard to complete the school year in the best way we can.
Again, thank you for your giving to an excellent cause!
Dear ASK Scholarships,
It is my desire to share my deepest appreciation and thanks to America’s Scholarship Konnection organization and its donors for their generous donations, and my excitement to learn that I was selected as the recipient of this tremendous scholarship award in the amount of $6,800.
I am interested in technology and math, and am currently planning to pursue a career in the computer sciences. I am a junior this year and expect to graduate in the spring of 2021. My family would not be able to afford to send me to the private Christian school of my choice without this scholarship program. Due to the blessing of this scholarship, I am able to attend a great school that supports my world view and study under exceptional teachers who inspire me to strive toward my goals and prepare for my college career.
By awarding me the (Scholarship), you have significantly lightened my financial burden, allowing me to focus on the most important aspect of school, my studies and learning. I look forward to the day that I will also be able to help struggling students attend their school of choice and reach their goals in Higher Education in the same way you have helped me. Thank you very much!
Dear Scholarship Donor,
I am writing to thank you for your generous $3,300.00 Scholarship. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of your scholarship.
I am a 7th grader at Academy, I would be a nurse or teacher to help the students and serve them with the love of God. I like drawing pictures and playing the violin. I hope sometime, I would play the violin for you and show my pictures. Thanks to your generous scholarship, I am now one step closer to achieving my goal.
By awarding me , you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Thank you.
Dear ASK Scholarships,
Thank you for the Scholarship our daughter just received. With this scholarship, our child will continue to enjoy the extremely well-rounded Christian education she has been experiencing since kindergarten.
This year the scholarship means so much more to us. This past summer, our 17-year-old son had his second open heart surgery. As such, my wife took time off from work to travel with him for the surgery and to stay at home and provide assistance during his recovery. For months, my job was the only source of income for the family, and as a mechanic it fluctuates. Without this scholarship and the lack of income we faced this year, we weren’t sure if we would be able to keep our daughter at the school she has grown to love.
Currently, she is a straight A student and loves attending her Academy. The scholarship she received will allow us to continue her education in a place where she flourishes and enjoys learning. Thank you again for your generosity and contribution to our daughter's education.
I am writing to say thank you for your generous donation of $5500 towards my school tuition at Northwest. I was very excited to hear that I had gotten it!
I am a new student there this year, and I have really been enjoying it! Last year I asked my mom to homeschool me after the charter school that I had done K-4th grade in closed down. I started 5th grade in another charter school but had a difficult time adjusting, so my mom did end homeschooling me. Then we toured Northwest this past summer and our whole family loved it. We are all very into sports and their sports program, and all the teachers and staff we met seemed really great! My parents really wanted to send me and my other three siblings but knew the cost of tuition would be hard to pull together. We’ve been hoping and praying that scholarships and tax credit donations would end up coming through.
We were all jumping up and down when we got yours! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This has been an incredible school year so far! I’ve made new friends, I’m getting straight A’s, and I just finished running Cross Country with the 6-8th grade team.
Your donation is a big help!
Dear ASK Scholarships,
I wanted to reach out to you to tell you how very thankful we are for the scholarship money that was given on behalf of our daughter, Gracie, for her school tuition.
I am her mother, Indi . My husband, Bobby and I have been blessed with 8 beautiful children. We have 3 biological children and 5 adopted children. Gracie was adopted from China when she was jus a baby. We knew from the moment she was put in our arms, that she was a special little girl. Gracie is an extremely quiet, shy girl but has a heart of gold. She is sweet, kind, obedient, helpful and hard-working. Gracie excels academically. She has been on the honor roll list since 1st grade and has been part of the Elementary Honor Society since 3rd grade. She is now in the 7th grade at Northwest Christian School and was inducted into the National Honor Society. She runs cross country for her school and enjoys photography. She has been playing piano for almost 2 and a half years and has progressed at a rate that has prized her teacher. Gracie also helps teach her younger sister piano. Gracie fully understands that she has the privilege of attending NCS only because of generous donors like you. Gracie feels very blessed by our generosity, as do we. She will continue to put her all into her academics.
Bobby, works very hard to provide for our family but having a big family is very challenging. So again, we want to thank you for this scholarship and want you to know your donation is making a difference.
I am writing to thank you for your generous $5,700.00 Scholarship. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of your scholarship.
I am currently a sixth-grader at Northwest Christian School. Thanks to your generous scholarship, I can easily continue to attend Northwest Christian to further develop my character and education. I love NCS because it provides the best education and an experience that I will remember for all of my life. I love the field trips and am very much looking forward to seventh grade. I am so grateful for all the teachers do for me.
By awarding me the Scholarship you have lightened my family's financial burden which allows us to focus more on the important aspects of school, learning, and service to others in need. I hope one day that I will also be able to help struggling students reach their goals by assisting them in the same way you have helped me. Thank you.
