The Our Faith STO is a charitable organization representing all of the Catholic K-12 schools in the Archdiocese of Dubuque and St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly, IA. The STO receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition grants to Iowa school children, who in turn, use those grants to attend one of the schools represented by the STO. For more information about the STO visit www.OurFaithSTO.org or contact Jeff Schneider at dbqcaDevDir@dbqarch.org.
In 2017, the Our Faith STO provided more than $5 million in student scholarship awards to more than 3,020 students attending schools in the Archdiocese of Dubuque for the 2017-2018 school year.
As an Iowa taxpayer, you can contribute to the STO and receive an Iowa tax credit equal to 65% of your contribution. The amount you contribute qualifies as a charitable donation on your federal tax return as well. To date, donors to our STO have saved more than $17 million on their Iowa Income Taxes.
Additionally, C and S corporations, LLC’s, estates and trusts that file an Iowa tax return can also take advantage of this tax credit program.
We accept all major credit cards.
