What is a Tax Credit?

We know that schools need an easy way to explain how tax credit donations work, because more donations equals more scholarships for students at your school! To make it easy, here is our simple two minute definition of the private school tax credit and its benefits for you to share!


To request or download donation brochures, Frequent Questions Brochures, and/or Scholarship Applications, visit our Literature page. If you need larger quantities, submit a request here (make sure to include your school's name).
