It is a rare and wonderful thing to be able to help a child secure a great education at Strong Rock Christian School. It is even more rare for a person to be able to do so by re-directing a portion of their Georgia income taxes toward the provision of scholarships for deserving families. Yet, in essence, by making a contribution to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program on behalf of Strong Rock Christian School, you can do just that. In exchange for your contribution, you will receive a Georgia income tax credit. Plus, if you itemize your deductions on your federal income tax return, your contribution to GOAL will be deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.
The GOAL Program is a remarkable and important opportunity provided to Georgians by our elected officials.
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 – in other words, by contributing with dollars you must spend anyway – you will help maximize financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Strong Rock Christian School education.
Tax Credit Limits Based on Filing Status have been expanded, effective in 2023!
*Favorable state and federal tax laws and regulations allow pass-through businesses to achieve remarkable benefits through the GOAL tax credit: a state tax credit, a federal tax deduction, and a meaningful philanthropic impact! Learn more.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DESIGNATE YOUR CONTRIBUTION FOR THE BENEFIT OF STRONG ROCK CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.
Please note that the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program provides an opportunity for participants to redirect tax liability already owed to the State of Georgia to a restricted priority (financial aid) at a favorite independent school. Participation in the program, therefore, is not related to participation in the annual Strong Rock Fund.
