The Georgia GOAL Program

The Qualified Education Expense credit cap of $120 million was reached on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Thank you for your support!

2024 Applications Are Open!

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 Valwood education.
