Open the door of opportunity
for a KIPPster!
Redirect your tax dollars to the KIPP Metro Atlanta Opportunity Fund by making a contribution that will earn you a State of Georgia Tax Credit and a Federal Deduction!
The KIPP Metro Atlanta Opportunity Fund is a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) designed to support KIPP students who matriculate to private high schools in Georgia. Many of our students receive financial aid packages that do not cover all tuition and expenses, thus preventing them from enrolling in the school of their choice. The KIPP Metro Atlanta Opportunity Fund provides additional funding for students who qualify. Redirect your tax dollars to the KIPP Metro Atlanta Opportunity Fund by making a contribution that will earn you a State of Georgia Tax Credit and a Federal Deduction and open the doors of opportunity to a KIPPster!
You can impact a child’s future at no cost to you!
Individual filers can receive up to $1,000 and married couples filing jointly can receive up to $2,500 in Georgia State tax credit (note: these are tax CREDITS applied to your Georgia tax return, not deductions). Corporations who contribute are eligible for a Georgia State tax credit equal to 75% of their state tax liability (or equal to the amount actually expended, whichever is less).
