GOAL Scholarship | Darlington School

Darlington School

Make your tax dollars work for Darlington students

By redirecting your Georgia state tax dollars, you can make a difference in a child’s life. The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program provides a portion of tuition assistance to Georgia public school students entering grades 1 to 12. This program not only attracts quality Georgia students to Darlington, but it also gives those students a choice in their future.

The GOAL initiative, approved by the Georgia General Assembly in 2008, is a win-win for all parties involved. Besides providing Georgia students with a great education, it frees up some of Darlington’s budgeted financial aid dollars to be used to help current families who are making real sacrifices to keep their children here in these tough economic times. Taxpayers who redirect their state income tax dollars to GOAL receive a tax credit for the amount of the contribution and a charitable deduction for federal tax purposes, provided they itemize.

Unfortunately, this wonderful program could be revoked at any time by our General Assembly. That’s why it is imperative that alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends of Darlington act fast to help with this opportunity for Georgia’s children. Just imagine what we can do for the lives of these Georgia students, and what a boost it will be to our enrollment at Darlington.

The process of participation is very simple, and only takes a few minutes. DeLean Brandon of Darlington’s Admission Office will fill out the paperwork for you and send it to GOAL on your behalf, or provide you with the necessary form if you wish to complete it yourself. For 2017,the deadline for filing your initial form is Nov.30, 2016. Please contact her at 706-314-3621 if you have any questions or would like to participate.

Darlington School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, independent school. All gifts to the school are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
