Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

2018 has been our best year yet for the Georgia GOAL Program and we thank you for your support and participation! All 2018 tax credit forms have been submitted to the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR). Contributors will be informed of approved contribution amounts once GOAL is notified by the DOR.
2019 GOAL Tax Credits
GOAL will begin accepting 2019 tax credit applications June 1, 2018.
Please check the Georgia GOAL website at that time for a link to the online tax credit application.
Through Georgia's Education Expense Credit, the GOAL Scholarship Program allows taxpayers to play a vital role in improving K-12 educational opportunities. This is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. This valuable Georgia law has been provided to us by our state legislators. Over the past several years, the tax credit program has become so popular that all $58 million in available credits are consumed on the first business day of the year.

“The Georgia GOAL program has been a blessing to our family. It has given us the opportunity to have our daughter learn in a Christ-centered environment. As a result, she is growing to be a kind, loving, considerate, and compassionate young lady whom we love and admire. She is striving to be the best she can be and is maintaining a 4.0 GPA. We feel very blessed. Thank you!”
