If you pay state taxes in Georgia, you have the power to change the life of a student in need at St. John the Evangelist while reaping a generous tax benefit. Thanks to the Georgia Private School Tax Credit law, taxpayers can re-direct a portion of their state taxes to Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs). GRACE Scholars is one such SSO, and taxpayers can choose to directly support students at St. John the Evangelist through participation in the GRACE Scholars program.
The GRACE Scholars program provides access to a Catholic school education for Georgia families who otherwise could not afford school tuition. Taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit for their gift while helping to make a Catholic school education a reality for families in need. What is especially appealing to taxpayers is that they can specify which Catholic school they would like to receive their re-directed taxes, and, if they itemize, donors can claim the contribution on their federal taxes.
