Your Georgia Tax Dollars Can Help HCA

What if there was a way for you to decide where some of your state tax dollars go...and what if those dollars could go to Harvester Christian Academy?


Through the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, individual taxpayers and corporations can redirect some of their tax dollars to HCA and receive a 100% STATE INCOME TAX CREDIT!

This is a proven opportunity that is a WIN-WIN-WIN for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our HCA community. By contributing with tax dollars you must spend anyway, you help maximize financial aid for deserving families who desire an HCA education.

Tax Credit Allowances Based on Filing Status

What started as a state fund with a cap of $20 million has now expanded to $100 million available scholarship dollars! Georgia GOAL will continue to submit any tax credit applications submitted to its website until they are notified that the cap has been reached.
