Interested in redirecting your state income tax liability for a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, to support Mount Pisgah Christian School’s tuition assistance program? Please visit here for more information about our partnership with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program.
For the 2018 GOAL year, we had 194 participants totaling $305,876.40 in scholarship money available for qualifying, mission-compatible students. Special thanks to the contributors who redirected their state income liability and chose to invest it in our school and students.
The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is Much More Than a Way to Redirect Your Tax Dollars.
GOAL is a tax strategy that allows Georgia taxpayers to redirect a portion of their state income tax for a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, to provide scholarships for eligible students to attend Mount Pisgah Christian School.
Give Yourself Some Credit!
You are already paying income taxes - why not direct those funds to provide Georgia children with Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL). By contributing to GOAL for a tax credit, you will provide opportunities for Georgia families desiring to attend Mount Pisgah. Our school is then able to:
- increase the amount of tuition assistance that can be offered to new students
- preserve more of our existing tuition assistance to help families already enrolled
- increase enrollment
- increase tuition income
- increase the funds available to improve educational and other offerings
- enable the school to further its mission by reaching more families desiring a Christ-Centered, College-Prep, Life-Ready education

What Others are Saying:
“Georgia GOAL Scholarship is an amazing program that provides K-12 families educational opportunities that they might not otherwise have. When you contribute to GA GOAL, you get a dollar for dollar tax credit against your GA income tax liability... it's a simple redirection of funds. It is a great way to not only help our School with scholarship funding, but to also provide opportunities for potential students that might not otherwise be able to receive a private school education.” Leigh Ann Bishop, Mount Pisgah Parent

Does This Take the Place Of the Annual Fund?
No. Georgia GOAL is not a financial gift. It is a tax strategy that provides a dollar-for-dollar tax credit to individuals or corporations who donate to scholarship funds earmarked for use by a specific private school. The Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program restricts the use of these funds. The funds are then used by Mount Pisgah to offer tuition aid to a public school student seeking enrollment. The Annual Fund is a financial gift to Mount Pisgah. Learn more about how we use Annual Fund contributions here.
