IL Tax Credit Scholarships
In August, 2017, the Illinois legislature passed the new Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program bill, Invest in Kids, which allows for a 75% income tax credit for individuals and corporations who make authorized contributions to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). A SGO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization approved by the Illinois Department of Revenue. The primary goal of an SGO is to award scholarships to qualifying students. If desired, an individual may elect to direct their contribution to Trinity High School.
We strongly encourage you to meet with your personal tax professional to see whether making a gift to an SGO or directly to Trinity High School would stand to make the greatest impact for you and our needy families. However, the most efficient and flexible means by which you can impact Trinity students is by making a gift directly to Trinity High School.
