Corporate Giving

A gift to Grace Christian School can provide your company with a substantial tax credit, through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. The EITC Program is a unique opportunity for businesses in the state to reduce tax liability by contributing to a registered scholarship organization. Gifts to scholarships at GCS can generate a tax credit equal to 75% of the contribution, up to a maximum of $750,000 annually. Two-year commitments receive a 90% tax reduction up to a maximum of $750,000 each year.
