Ways to Support

When you support King’s Ridge students, you are blessing them so that they may bless others.
All school community members – trustees, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends – are asked to support the students and school programs through numerous Ways to Invest. From donations to the Annual Fund to redirecting taxes to our Georgia Private School Tax Credit/SSO program, every gift we receive makes a direct impact on our students and their KRCS experience.

We are very grateful to all who support our students by making King’s Ridge Christian School a charitable priority in their life.

Contact Sharon Hurst, Director of Advancement, at 678.770.8708 (cell) for more information or questions about giving to KRCS.

  • Contribution Process

    Visit Georgia GOAL for the easy step-by-step contribution process.
  • FAQs

    What is the maximum amount I can contribute?
    Up to $1,000 for a single individual. Up to $2,500 for a married couple. Up to 75% of a C-corp’s or eligible Trust total Georgia income tax liability. $10K max for Pass-through taxpayers.

    How is this education credit better than a tax deduction?

    This credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount you owe in Georgia taxes. For example, if you donate $2,500, your tax bill would be reduced by the full $2,500.

    How does this impact my current tax withholding?

    Participation in the program does not automatically change your withholdings amount. The benefits of your donation will be realized when you file your year-end taxes.

    If I am itemizing on my federal return, is there any additional benefit under the tax code?

    Great news! Any amount of your contribution above and beyond your $10K max deduction will significantly reduce your federal tax burden.

    What happens if my donation exceeds my tax liability?

    The tax credit is a “non-refundable” credit. Any excess can be carried forward for up to 5 years.

    Can I donate if I plan to get a refund when I file my taxes?

    Yes! Getting a refund means you’ve overpaid your tax liability. Donating will decrease your “pre-paid” tax liability, potentially resulting in an additional refund.

    Can Georgia GOAL accept matching gifts and charitable contributions?

    Yes. Georgia GOAL is a 501c3 non-profit and is eligible to receive all charitable gifts. Participation in the Georgia GOAL tax credit, due to the tax code changes, will likely significantly reduce your federal tax burden as you are receiving both a dollar-for-dollar Georgia tax credit and a federal charitable contribution deduction.

  • C-Corps/Trusts

    • Divert up to 75% of your Georgia tax liability.
    • Established a convenient and consistent mechanism and incentive for your business to educate Georgia’s children directly.
    • Targets educational expenditures directly to families and children in local communities rather than institutions that may reduce the amount of resources going directly to students.
    • Provides a cost-effective method of maintaining philanthropic goals in a much more tax beneficial manner.
    • In general, businesses are rewarded by owners, shareholders, equity analysts, and financial institutions for minimizing the percentage of income going to taxes because a lower tax burden is associated with sound financial management (even though contributions to Georgia tax credit scholarships would be equivalent to the amount being paid in taxes).
