St Paul is making available a tuition discount opportunity for the 2023-2024 school year for participants in the Georgia GaSSO tax credit program that essentially has no cost to you. Here is an outline of the opportunity: 2023-2024 tuition will be discounted by $2500 per family for ever $5000 funded pledge through the Georgia Tax Credit program – your pledge will be refunded to your tax return the following year. Full details are found at GeorgiaSSO.com and you can submit your pledge today!
Unlike a deduction, a tax credit is applied toward your Georgia state income taxes. In other words, your contribution of $2500 will come off your Georgia income taxes dollar for dollar. Families have up to 5 years to exhaust a tax credit in Georgia.
No. The tuition discount is awarded by St. Paul in response to the funded pledge to Georgia School Scholarship Organization. Other families (or yours) may apply for scholarships from the fund. Scholarships are granted by the school based on financial need and commitment to St. Paul. It is a simple way of building our scholarship capacity to support the needs of families in our community.
The Georgia Tax Credit Program allows families to build the St. Paul scholarship fund and receive a Georgia income tax credit in exchange for participating. To participate, visit GeorgiaSSO.com and submit your pledge today. When a school family participates, tuition will be discounted by $2500 per family in exchange for every $5000 funded pledge through the Georgia Tax Credit program (or 50% of funded pledge). Parents, other family members, or friends may participate and designate a St. Paul student for the tuition discount. GaSSO manages the school scholarship program for St. Paul.
Support the St. Paul scholarship fund through the Georgia School Scholarship Fund (GaSSO). The St. Paul scholarship fund helps families in the future and as a thank you, participating families enjoy a significant discount for the 23-24 school year.
