Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

 

Submit your 2020 GOAL Tax Credit Application today!

 

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 Unity Christian School 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!
