Private School Tax Credit (GOAL)
Lovett participates in the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program, also known as Georgia GOAL.
The Lovett community has the opportunity to redirect their Georgia tax liability to support independent school education—specifically a Lovett education! Your participation in this program can help us offer need-based scholarships to new students at a time when financial need is at an all-time high.
Georgia sets aside $65 million in tax credits for Georgia residents and C Corporations that donate funds to qualified Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs) each year. The SSOs, which are nonprofit organizations, then grant scholarships for current public school students and kindergarten students to attend Georgia’s private and independent schools, such as Lovett. Lovett has partnered with the state's leading SSO—GOAL—to administer this special scholarship program. A Lovett constituent would make a donation to GOAL, designating Lovett as their recipient, in exchange for a tax credit. That donation, in turn, would become a scholarship grant for a student to attend Lovett.
Please note that the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program redirects tax liability already owed to the state to an independent school of your choosing for financial aid purposes. Your participation in this program is not related to the True Blue Annual Fund.
GOAL is currently accepting tax credit applications for the 2023 tax year.
