In May of 2008, Gov. Perdue signed HB1133 into law allowing Georgia taxpayers to direct their tax dollars to private schools.  It also gives private schools an opportunity to offer scholarships to students.  We are excited to be working with Golden Dome Scholarship Fund, Inc.  This program allows a donor to receive a dollar for dollar tax credit (up to $2,500 for married filing jointly) on GA state taxes and a federal tax deduction. 

The Golden Dome Scholarship Fund Inc. was incorporated to assist private schools in obtaining scholarships for their students. These scholarships are funded through donations from individuals and corporations. The management of the Golden Dome Scholarship Fund Inc. has been involved with funding issues for private grade schools for over 25 years. Their motto summarizes their mission:

"Providing Educational Funding for our Leaders of Tomorrow - Today"

This program allows individuals to donate up to $2,500(for married filing jointly) and corporations to donate up to 75% of their tax liability.  We encourage more people to participate which allows more students the opportunity to receive scholarships.
