GOAL Program

Act now to claim your 2020 credits!

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program – Submit your 2020 GOAL Tax Credit Application today at goalscholarship.org.
 
In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!
 
The Georgia legislature has nearly doubled the available credits, alleviating the ‘oversubscription’ problem of past years. In 2019, instead of being approved for only about half of the amount taxpayers wish to contribute, they will very likely be approved for an amount between 90% and 100%.

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, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Brookwood education.
 
You have the opportunity to make this our school’s best year yet in raising GOAL funds!

What is GOAL?

In 2008, Georgia elected officials passed the Education Expense Credit law to provide Georgia families with access to better educational opportunities for their children. Through this program, qualified Georgia taxpayers may redirect a portion of their income tax to fund scholarships for eligible students. Brookwood School partners with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, Inc. to facilitate this program.

If you have questions about your role as a GOAL Supporter, please contact Kelly Campbell, our Director of Advancement, at 229-226-8070 or kcampbell@brookwoodschool.org.
