Georgia GOAL

Georgia GOAL

You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide tuition assistance to financially eligible Marist students?

Since 2008, Marist School has 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 financial aid program. There is virtually no cost to participate, but it has a tremendous impact on Marist's ability to provide financial aid to students in need. 

Many thanks to those who have participated in the GOAL program! We are deeply grateful for the additional financial aid support this program provides Marist School each year.

  • How do I sign up?

    GOAL continues to accept applications for the 2019 program. Apply online or download the application form to sign up today.  
  • How does it work?

    Participants apply to GOAL online or via a hard copy form and 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.

    There is virtually no cost to participate, and while participation is not a charitable donation, it has a tremendous impact on Marist’s ability to provide financial aid to students and families in need. 
  • Pass-through entities

    Individuals with ownership in S-corps, LLCs or Partnerships (pass-through entities) may contribute up to $10,000 to GOAL for a tax credit, providing even greater support for Marist School. For more information, click here
