Are you sitting down? You’re never going to believe this.
If you pay state taxes in Ohio, you can repurpose that money to fund life-changing educational opportunities for students at Harambee Christian School thanks to Ohio’s new Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) Tax Credit Program.
The Columbus Opportunity Scholarship Fund is a brand new certified SGO in the state of Ohio that enables donors to receive a dollar-for-dollar matching tax credit, up to $750 for individuals or $1,500 for married couples filing jointly, when making a gift in support of scholarships for students at Harambee Christian School.
That’s right. You can use your taxes to fund a cause you care about and receive a dollar-for-dollar matching amount when filing your Ohio state taxes. (This is not the same as the standard charitable deduction - this is a tax CREDIT.)
We will be sharing a video shortly that explains this unique opportunity in more detail. In the meantime, visit columbusopportunity.org to learn more. There you can read a list of Frequently Asked Questions and make your contribution. While this exciting new opportunity expands the school’s fundraising horizons, it does not replace the generous sustaining support made by donors throughout the year.
You will have the option to designate “Harambee Christian School” on the Donate page.
Checks can also be made out and sent to:
Columbus Opportunity Scholarship Fund 1000 Bonham Avenue Columbus, OH 43211|
Thank you for considering this exciting new opportunity. We can’t wait to see the impact God makes through your generosity.
