Tax Credit Scholarships (SGO)
About The Program
The Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program was established to incentivize private donations to fund educational choice for low to middle income families attending non-public schools. Alternatively, it’s been called the SEC (Scholarships for Education Choice) and SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization) program. Whatever you call it, it has been one of the most exciting and beneficial programs produced by Indiana’s state government in recent years.
The SGO program has provided many families with the funds necessary to allow their children a Christian education. When you give to the SGO program, through the Heritage Fund, your wise stewardship provides students a scholarship towards an education centered on Christ.
