About the Program
The Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program was designed as a way to assist low and middle income families in assembling the financial resources needed to exercise parental choice in the education of their children. In June 2011, Heritage’s Board of Directors voted to participate in this program. Since then, this program has provided many families with the funds necessary to provide their children with the private, Christian education they desire. When you give to this fund, your wise stewardship provides student grants towards an education centered on Christ

An Opportunity that Seems Too Good to Be True
"When I first heard about the opportunity to donate to HCS’s financial assistance program through the Sagamore Institute SGO it sounded too good to be true. After an examination by my advisers, I was very happy to be able to give towards financial assistance at HCS using this vehicle. I am not aware of another giving opportunity that allows you to reallocate such a large percentage of funds away from the federal and state government and to a more deserving cause." - Joe Wendel, Parent
