About Georgia GOAL

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program Submit your 2024 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 First Presbyterian Day School education.
