Tell the State of Georgia where you want your tax dollars spent!
If you pay state taxes in Georgia, you can change the life of a St. John Neumann student in need and receive a generous tax benefit. GRACE assists more than 1,000 students a year which ranks it third among the 29 student scholarship organizations in Georgia. This demonstrates the power of Georgia Catholics when they join together.
The GRACE Scholars program was created to help qualifying families afford a quality Catholic education while at the same time provide donors with an opportunity to redirect their tax dollars towards Catholic school scholarships.
As a Georgia taxpayer, you can receive a 100% dollar for dollar tax credit against your Georgia taxes which means that you actually can lower the amount you owe to the State by the amount of your donation to GRACE Scholars.
You can designate St. John Neumann Regional Catholic School as the beneficiary of your GRACE donation. 100% of your donation will be used for tuition assistance for our very own families.
New IRS ruling (June 2019): The previous ruling stated that a donation used as a tax credit on a state return could not be claimed as a charitable contribution on the federal return. However, the new ruling allows individual taxpayers who itemize deductions to treat their donation to GRACE on their federal return as payment of state or local taxes subject to the $10,000 SALT (state and local tax) cap. Donate $1,000 to GRACE and you lower your state of Georgia tax liability by $1,000 (100% of your donation) and if you itemize on your federal return you can treat the $1,000 donation as state and local income tax payments which are deductible up to the $10,000 cap.
How can I make a donation to GRACE Scholars to benefit SJNRCS students?
Thank you for saying Yes to GRACE!
