In its second year, Illinois’ Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program allowed individuals and corporations to support nearly 40 student scholarships at Cristo Rey and receive a 75% credit on their Illinois state taxes in return!
This January, the State of Illinois will renew the Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program, allowing donations to Cristo Rey for the 2020-21 academic year through specially approved Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). Interested donors can choose Cristo Rey Jesuit High School as their beneficiary and either Big Shoulders Fund or Empower Illinois as the Region 1 Scholarship Grant Organization (SGO) entity to which Cristo Rey families will apply. Applications to make a qualifying donation should be submitted through the Illinois Department of Revenue website on January 1, 2020, and the application process can take up to two weeks if you do not already have a MyTax IL account.
