Grace Christian Academy Participating in Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program
The State of Georgia has created an opportunity for taxpayers to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income taxes to improve educational opportunities in Georgia. Grace is partnering with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a student scholarship organization established through House Bill 1133 in 2008.
Our partnership with Georgia GOAL allows you to redirect a portion of your Georgia tax liability to Grace Christian Academy – up to $2,500 for married couples filing jointly, $1,250 for married filing separately, and $1,000 for individual filers. Please note that redirecting your tax obligation is not considered a gift and is, therefore, not a replacement for participation in Grace Christian Academy Annual Fund.
Taxpayers who redirect their state income tax dollars to GOAL receive a tax credit for their designated amount and/or a charitable deduction for federal tax purposes, provided they itemize. This redirection may be made at any time during 2012 by following the process as directed at http://www.goalscholarship.org/; however, you will not receive your tax benefit until you file your 2012 Georgia state taxes in 2013.
C-Corporations may contribute up to 75 percent of their Georgia tax liability to Georgia GOAL on behalf of Grace Christian Academy. Please inform your contacts at Georgia corporations about this effortless way to support our school. If you have a suggestion of a company we should contact, please let us know.
This program provides opportunities for more students to receive a GCA education. That’s why it is important that alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends of Grace Christian participate in this program.
