Ohioans donating money to scholarship-granting organizations (SGOs) are eligible to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $750 (or $1,500 for married couples filing jointly) for these donations. SGOs are nonprofits that provide private or parochial school scholarships to students in need. This tax-credit scholarship program began on July 1, 2021, and the list of eligible SGOs was significantly expanded in 2022.
If you receive a letter of receipt for your donation, please include it when you turn in your documents for tax preparation.
There are currently 24 certified SGOs in Ohio.
