Georgia GOAL Program

Now accepting applications for 2023!

This exciting program allows Georgia state income taxpayers to redirect a portion of their state tax dollars to scholarships for capable, deserving  students seeking a quality private education.

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program – Submit your 2023 GOAL Tax Credit Application today! 

The GOAL Program is a remarkable and important opportunity provided to Georgians by our elected officials. 

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

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 – in other words, by contributing with dollars you must spend anyway, you will help maximize financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Deerfield-Windsor education.
