What is GRACE?

In 2008, the State of Georgia passed the Private School Education Tax Credit allowing up to $50 million annually of tax money to be used for private pre-K to 12th-grade education.  Georgia taxpayers can redirect part of their tax liability to provide scholarships to incoming students at SFCCS.  The Diocese of Savannah, in partnership with the Archdiocese of Atlanta, is participating in this program through GRACE Scholars.


Can I “Take the Credit”?

Any Georgia taxpayer can redirect a portion of their tax dollars.  In addition to the State of Georgia tax credit, this amount also qualifies as a charitable contribution on your Federal tax return.

  • Married, filing jointly up to the lesser of $2,500 (filing separately $1250)
  • Individuals or Head of Household up to the lesser of 1,000.
  • “C” Corporations can take a credit equal to 75% of their taxable income)
  • Pass through entities (S-Corp, LLC, Partnership) lesser of tax liability or $10,000.
