Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program

*Georgia GOAL will be accepting applications through Dec. 15, 2018.

Make A Win-Win Impact: Redirect your Georgia tax liability to financial aid at Galloway

Individuals and Corporations (partners in partnerships, LLC owners, and shareholders of S-Corps) paying Georgia taxes are eligible for a dollar-for-dollar credit on state income taxes. Every year, the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program, combined with support from Galloway’s endowment and Annual Giving dollars, plays a critical role in the School’s overall financial-aid initiatives. Your participation in this program makes a substantial impact on the School's ability to enroll bright, motivated, and curious students regardless of their family's ability to pay full tuition.

Redirect your 2019 GA tax liability: APPLY NOW

Galloway partners with Georgia GOAL, the state’s leading Student Scholarship Organization (SSO). GOAL works with 131 independent schools throughout Georgia and has awarded tuition assistance to more than 9,000 deserving students since the program’s 2008 inception. Currently, 45 Galloway students receive financial assistance through tax credits. Because of the popularity of the program, applications for a 2019 tax credit must be submitted by December 28, 2018. To submit your application for this program, please visit

Please note that the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program provides an opportunity for participants to redirect tax liability already owed to the State of Georgia to a restricted priority (financial aid) at a favorite independent school. Participation in the program, therefore, is not related to participation in Annual Giving.
