Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Make an even bigger impact!

The Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program allows individuals and corporations to donate to approved Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) and receive a credit on their Illinois state taxes in return. An SGO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, approved to participate in the Program by the Illinois Department of Revenue. Under the Program, these SGOs match donor funds to qualifying students as scholarships, with priority given to low-income students. By law, at least 95% of these contributions must be spent directly on scholarships, with 5% available to the SGO for overhead costs. We partner with Empower Illinois and the Big Shoulders Fund.

Donations made through December 2023 will help fund 2023-2024 scholarships, but still qualify for a 2023 state tax credit.
