GRACE Scholars is a Georgia nonprofit corporation and tax exempt charity. GRACE has met the requirements for designation as a student scholarship organization (SSO) in Georgia. Because GRACE is an SSO, Georgia taxpayers can redirect part of their tax liability to GRACE and qualify for a generous tax benefit created by the Georgia legislature – a 100 percent tax credit. As GRACE is a tax exempt charity (501-c-3 organization), gifts to GRACE are also qualify charitable contributions under federal law.
The mission of GRACE Scholars, Inc. is to provide children from families with financial need throughout the State of Georgia with greater opportunities to secure a quality PK-12 Catholic education.
Our goal is to afford qualifying families a quality education while providing donors with an opportunity to use their tax dollars towards Catholic school scholarships.
To be eligible for a GRACE award, a student must be a resident of the state of Georgia and demonstrate financial need. In addition, students entering second grade and above must have attended a Georgia public school immediately prior to receiving a scholarship. Those students enrolling in pre-k, kindergarten, or first grade do not have to transfer from a Georgia public school.
