Etz Chaim Preschool is proud to be a participant in the ALEF Fund, which was established in 2008 by the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta in response to the Georgia State Assembly's passing of the Education Expense Credit.
 
Georgia Education Tax Credit: Make an Impact!
 
Become a part of one of the most important and sought-after opportunities in our state. Georgia offers an exceptional education tax credit program, allowing you to utilize your state income tax dollars to provide tuition assistance for deserving students seeking a Etz Chaim Preschool education.
 
By participating in this opportunity, you strengthen our school and make an extraordinary impact on Etz Chaim Preschool student body – all without any additional cost to you.
 
The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program recently became the official Student Scholarship Organization partner of the ALEF Fund. Through Georgia GOAL, you can contribute funds that directly support qualified students’ access to our exceptional educational environment, and you will receive a 100% Georgia income tax credit in exchange for your contribution.
 
 
It is almost certain that GOAL tax credits will be oversubscribed in 2024, just as they were this year. Accordingly, you must submit your 2024 application before the end of 2023 in order to obtain a GOAL tax credit. In addition, keep in mind that you are unlikely to be approved for the full amount of your requested tax credit.
