How it Works...

Each year, Pay It Forward Scholarships has access to 58 million dollars in tax credits to distribute to Georgia tax payers who donate a scholarship to any private Pre-K through 12 school of their choice in Georgia.

In addition to a dollar-for-dollar Georgia state tax credit, donors will also receive a federal charitable deduction equal to their federal income tax rate.

Each month, starting in January 2015, Pay It Forward Scholarships divides any scholarship funds available for your school equally among all approved scholars.


The deadline to apply for a scholarship or to be a tax credit donor is December 31st, 2014.
