In 2011, the Oklahoma State Legislature passed a law that allows for individuals and corporations to donate to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) to help poor families afford private schools. Here in Tulsa, we’ve created “GO for Catholic Schools”, an SGO that collects and distributes needed dollars for families to be able to afford Catholic schools in the Diocese of Tulsa.
The great thing about GO is that a gift to GO is tax deductible but is also eligible for a tax credit. See this page of the GO website to enter in a specific donation amount and to see your tax benefits: https://goforcatholicschools.com/Benefits/
If you love Catholic schools and want to help keep them affordable, a gift to GO makes a lot of sense. I’m proud to serve on the Board of GO and encourage you to give before the end of 2013. To learn more about GO, see our website http://goforcatholicschools.com/
