Giving

 

Whitefield Academy partners with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a student scholarship organization that allows participants to redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to Whitefield Academy.  

 

By redirecting a portion of your Georgia income taxes to Georgia GOAL, you help increase the availability of financial aid for qualified Whitefield families.

 

Participate TODAY to reserve your tax credit for the year 2020.

 

The state allows taxpayers to take part in this program at the following maximum credits:

  • $2,500 for married couples filing jointly
  • $1,250 for married couples filing separately
  • $1,000 for individuals
  • Up to $10,000 for S-corp shareholders, members of an LLC or partners in a partnership
  • Up to 75% of Georgia tax liability for C-corp or trusts

Our partnership with Georgia GOAL makes participation in this program easy.  Let’s get started!

While participation in the Georgia GOAL program benefits Whitefield by enhancing financial aid, it is not considered a donation. When you participate, you redirect tax dollars already owed to the state. We continue to rely on support of the Whitefield Fund, Leaving a Legacy campaign and other donations to make Whitefield truly exceptional for our students.
