In 2008, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 1133 (HB 1133) and Governor Sonny Perdue signed it into law. The law provides for the creation of student scholarship organizations (SSOs) to which Georgia individual and corporate taxpayers can contribute in exchange for a state income tax credit and possible federal charitable income tax deduction. The SSOs use the contributions to award scholarships to students from k-12 public schools so that they can attend the private schools chosen by their parents.
In calendar year 2017, the $58 million cap was reached on January 1! For more information on how you can help GCS through this program, visit the GASSO, Inc. or The Golden Dome Scholarship Fund, Inc. website or call the school.
