Online Giving


Donate to School Tax Credit Program

Donate Now -- There’s still time left to donate to the new funding bill for education that allows tax credit scholarships for low-income families whose children attend non-public schools. The tax credit program opened in early January and will cap its donations at $100 million, but that amount hasn’t been met yet. For donating to the non-profit Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), you’ll receive a 75-percent state income tax credit.
