Tax Credit Scholarship Program Application Opens
The new Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program, or Invest in Kids Program, encourages families to apply for scholarships that can help them attend non-public schools, including but not limited to the schools traditionally supported by the Big Shoulders Fund.
Big Shoulders has been approved to operate as a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). An SGO is a tax-exempt charity approved by the Illinois Department of Revenue to administer scholarship dollars donated specifically for this program. Families apply directly to SGOs to obtain a tax credit scholarship. Scholarships are determined solely based on eligibility and family income as defined by the Invest in Kids Act.
Please visit bigshouldersfundsgo.org for more information about eligibility requirements and the application process. Big Shoulders Fund’s application for this program will open on January 22, 2018 at 8:00am.
