SGO Scholarships

Public Incentive for Private Giving

Since 2009, Tax Credit Scholarships in Indiana have provided a public incentive for private giving. Individuals and corporations can receive a 50% state tax credit when making donations to an approved Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO).

In the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, the Scholarship Granting Organization of Northeast Indiana, Inc. (SGONEI) has been established and offers scholarships to students who meet certain income requirements.

Corporate donors to SGONEI receive an Indiana State tax credit equal to 50% of the amount given, in addition to the federal tax deduction for donating to a 501(c)(3). There is no size limitation on donations accepted from corporate donors.

Your generous gift to SGONEI will help Our Lady School offer scholarships to qualifying students and their families in grades K-8 and make Catholic education affordable for low and middle income families. Please visit or contact Natalie for more information on how to make a contribution to Our Lady School's SGO fund for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.
