How do you donate at NO COST to you?  It’s easy!

How It Works

The Alabama Accountability Act (AAA) allows a portion of your tax liability to provide tuition assistance to students who demonstrate a financial need. You’re not just giving a scholarship, you’re getting a tax credit. By redirecting a portion of your tax liability using a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), you reduce the total amount of your tax bill by 50%. You have an opportunity to give a child access to an education they could not otherwise receive at no cost to you.

Individuals can redirect up to 50% of their Alabama state tax liability. The annual maximum tax credit available on an individual tax return is $50,000.

Corporate contributors can redirect up to 50% of their TOTAL tax liability. There is no maximum limit for the tax credit.

Lincoln Academy receives scholarships from both Scholarship for Kids and RocketSGO.
