Make a Difference

Your taxes can create scholarships

Chances are, you're already paying Georgia income taxes. Why not redirect some of your hard-earned dollars to provide tuition assistance to financially eligible Foundry Academy students?

 

In 2019, Foundry Academy partnered with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) created through the Georgia Education Expense Tax Credit Program. This program enables Georgia residents, corporations, trusts, LLCs, and partnerships the opportunity to designate a portion of their state tax liability to the school's need-based scholarship program. While there is no cost to participants, the program has a tremendous impact on the Foundry Academy's ability to provide financial assistance to students in need. 

Participants apply to GOAL by December 31 each year. GOAL sends all applications to the Department of Revenue (DOR) on the first business day in January. The DOR will then send approval letters. Once approved by the DOR, participants must make their payments to GOAL within 60 days. Participants can take a state tax credit when filing their taxes the following spring.

 

Many thanks to those who are participating in the GOAL program! We are deeply grateful for the financial support this program will provide Foundry Families.
