GOAL Scholarship

Give the gift of a Darlington education.

The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Darlington education.
Over the past several years, the tax credit program has become so popular that all available credits are consumed on the first business day of the year. That’s why it is imperative that alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends of the school act fast to help with this opportunity for future Darlington students.
Submit your 2025 GOAL Tax Credit Form online today by visiting www.goalscholarship.org

How to Contribute

Complete the 2024 GOAL Tax Credit application today at www.goalscholarship.org (takes just 20 seconds!).
On the first business day of January 2025, GOAL submits your application to the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR).
GOAL and DOR notify you of approved tax credit amount and payment deadline in early January 2025.
Pay GOAL by check or credit card within 60 days of DOR approval (by mid-March 2025).
In May, GOAL will send you a Form IT-QEE-SSO1 (tax receipt) for claiming the credit on your 2025 Georgia income tax return (Note: you will take the credit when you file your 2025 taxes in 2026).
