Georgia GOAL

Your Taxes - Your Choice

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL) is a partnership program that allows you to redirect a portion of your Georgia tax payments to support Pinecrest Academy. If you pay taxes in Georgia, through your employer or through your own business, you can decide to send a portion of that tax liability to support Pinecrest Academy. Your contribution to GOAL, our non-profit partner, allows you to claim a state income tax credit that funds scholarships for qualified Pinecrest students.

Submit your 2020 GOAL Tax Credit Form online today by visiting www.goalscholarship.org. Your participation is more valuable than ever!

Invest in the Pinecrest Academy community and help provide student scholarships by simply contributing to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program for a 100% Georgia income tax credit. You will make a positive impact on our school, in our community, and across our state!

This valuable Georgia law is a rare and precious opportunity provided to us by our state legislators. The tax credit program has become so popular that all $58 million in available credits are consumed on the first business day of the year. Take action today and be a part of this phenomenon!

Your participation will allow us to admit excellent, deserving student applicants to our school. We ask that you “go for the GOAL” and help us continue to empower students to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
