How can my student apply 

for an SGO Scholarship?

What is a "Tax Credit"?

The State of Ohio's Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) tax credit (Section 5747.73 of the Ohio Revised Code) authorizes donors who contribute to K-12 student scholarships through a certified SGO to receive dollar-for-dollar reduction in their state taxes up to $750 per individual taxpayer. Your gift to the Ohio Christian Education Network SGO (OCEN SGO) will go directly to a scholarship for a student attending Hametown Christian Academy.

Why donate to an SGO?

A 100% tax credit up to $750 per person per year ($1,500 for those filing married filing jointly). The first $750 will be granted a $750 state tax credit, and the amount of the gift beyond the initial $750 may be claimed as a federal and state tax deduction.

How will my gift be stewarded?

100% Tuition Scholarships. Gifts make a high-quality Christian education accessible and affordable for all of our school families.

Do I qualify to give?

Anyone can support SGO Scholarships! However, to receive the tax credit you must pay or owe Ohio state taxes. Anyone whose taxable income is over $44,250 owes a minimum of $878.42 in state tax. $750 donated towards Christian education reduces this amount to $128.42 remaining for the state.
