Georgia Goal

You can help change the lives of students through the Georgia Education Tax Credit opportunity. By redirecting a portion of your state tax dollars through a contribution to Georgia GOAL, you are earmarking those tax dollars toward educational scholarships to Tattnall Square Academy.

What is it?

In 2008, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 1133. This new law allows you, a Georgia taxpayer, to redirect a portion of your Georgia income tax liability to provide scholarsh

ip assistance to incoming TSA students! To enable our supporters to take advantage of this program, we are working with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a state-approved student scholarship organization.

Who Can “Take the Credit?”

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 Tattnall Square Academy education.

How Are the Funds Used?

The GOAL Scholarship Program uses the TSA designated contributions to fund K-12 scholarships for public school children who desire to attend Tattnall. The scholarships are also available for qualified students who are eligible to enter kindergarten. Each year,TSA uses its regular admission and financial aid process to determine those students who are eligible to receive GOAL scholarships and submits the scholarship candidates and amounts to GOAL for final approval.

If you have any questions, please contact Brandi Fountain in the Development Office at brandi.fountain@tattnall.org.

“Without the GOAL scholarship, I could not afford for my son to attend TSA. I cannot imagine our lives without the “TSA family”. I am thankful for the staff who have been such a godly influence in his life. My son has been empowered by the Tattnall experience and I will forever be grateful to the donors who make this scholarship possible.”
