  • Apogee Scholarship Fund

    Posted November 30, 2011

    The Friends School of Atlanta (FSA) works with the Apogee Scholarship Fund, a Student Scholarship Organization that administers Georgia’s independent school tax credit scholarship program. This program offers a unique opportunity for you or your company to redirect your tax dollars to provide tuition assistance for new FSA students coming from public schools or just entering pre-kindergarten, kindergarten or first grade. Individual filers can contribute up to $1,000, joint filers up to $2,500, and c-corps up to 75% of GA tax liability. You will receive a dollar-for-dollar GA tax credit for the amount of your contribution. If you pay your taxes throughout the year, you can still participate. Please click here for more detailed information on the program as well as step-by-step instructions for your participation. Thank you for your generosity and consideration of this program. Please note, redirecting your state taxes to The Friends School of Atlanta does not count as support for FSA’s all-important Annual Appeal.
