A Better Way to Support Schools

Donations are deductible though. PPIE has a giving fund which is tax deductible.
A better way though is to do what is done in the State of Arizona.
In Arizona they have a State Income Tax credit for school donations which is deductible at the Federal level and is also directly applied your State Income liability. You can even designate a program within a school or just the school for your donation.
