Why did your corporation decide to work with CEA through the Low-Income Corporate Tax Credit?

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Meritage is proud to support efforts to improve access to quality education in Arizona as the enhancement of education in Arizona is essential to the continued prosperity of our great state.

What brings you back to CEA every year?

CEA schools have long led the way in producing quality students to our high schools, colleges, and universities. In addition to the high quality of education afforded to their students, Catholic schools have long instilled in their students a sense of community, obligation and character that have allowed them to become leaders in The Valley, our state and the nation.  By enhancing access to Catholic schools for children who may not otherwise be able to attend them, Meritage is confident that it is contributing to the development of our leaders of tomorrow.
