Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

The Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program allows Georgia residents and C-Corporations to redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) in support of the financial aid program at a private school of their choice.  Participants receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their state income taxes and a charitable deduction on their federal return.

  • Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

    In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!
    The Georgia legislature has nearly doubled the available credits, alleviating the ‘oversubscription’ problem of past years. As a result, in 2019, taxpayers were approved for 100% of what they wished to contribute!

    This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to Georgia GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Walker education.
    You have the opportunity to make this our school’s best year yet in raising GOAL funds! With your participation, we can achieve our 2020 vision and maximize the impact of this program on our community!
