MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Chances are, you're already paying Georgia income taxes. Why not redirect some of your hard-earned dollars to provide tuition assistance to financially eligible Foundry students?
In 2019, The Foundry partnered with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) created through the Georgia Education Expense Tax Credit Program. This program enables Georgia residents, corporations, trusts, LLCs, and partnerships the opportunity to designate a portion of their state tax liability to the school's need-based scholarship program. While there is no cost to participants, the program has a tremendous impact on The Foundry's ability to provide financial assistance to students in need.
Many thanks to those who are participating in the GOAL program! We are deeply grateful for the financial support this program will provide Foundry Families.
