About GOAL

The GOAL Program is a remarkable and brilliant opportunity provided to Georgians by our elected officials. The GOAL fundamentals include:

  • The fundamental right of parents to choose the best K-12 education for their children
  • The essential Georgia law that empowers taxpaying citizens to be part of the solution to improving education in our state – at no cost
  • The vital program component, whereby individual compassion is indispensable to addressing the need for excellent K-12 educational opportunities for all students

In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!

This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to Georgia GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive an FPD education.
