Georgia Private School Tax Credit (ALEF Fund)

The Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program allows Georgia residents and C-Corporations to redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) in support of the financial aid program at a private school of their choice. Participants receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their state income taxes and a charitable deduction on their federal return. Read more at the Georgia Department of Education website.

The Davis Academy partners with ALEF Fund, a state-approved Student Scholarship Organization (SSO), to enable The Davis Academy community to participate in the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program. The Davis Academy uses the ALEF Fund to provide need-based financial aid to deserving students moving from public schools or entering The Davis Academy in Mechina: Kindergarten Prep, kindergarten or first grade.
