Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program


Submit your 2019 GOAL Tax Credit Application today at 

In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!

In addition, if they itemize, taxpayers receive a federal charitable income tax deduction for the amount of their contribution to GOAL. 

Given the new federal limits on the deductibility of state and local income taxes, this is significant!
By contributing to GOAL,
you are making a charitable contribution, and may gain back a deduction,
thereby reducing your federal tax burden.

 The Georgia legislature has nearly doubled the available credits, alleviating the ‘oversubscription’ problem of past years. In 2019, instead of being approved for only about half of the amount taxpayers wish to contribute, they will very likely be approved for an amount between 90% and 100%.

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 Benedictine education.

 You have the opportunity to make this our school’s best year yet in raising GOAL funds!
