As a member of our parish family, you understand the importance of spreading the Good News of the Gospel and passing our faith on to our youth. Thanks to a law passed by the Ohio legislature in 2021, you can now redirect your Ohio tax dollars to support Catholic education, making it more accessible and affordable to all families.
Ohio taxpayers who make a gift to a certified scholarship granting organization (SGO) can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $750 for individuals and up to $1,500 for married couples filing jointly, reducing your state income tax liability. Essentially, you can take what you would have owed in Ohio tax and shift it to the Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund, the Diocese of Columbus’ very own SGO.
The Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund creates much needed scholarship dollars for the schools in our diocese while giving you the power to direct your tax dollars to support our efforts to lead children to an encounter with Jesus. You can even direct your gift to provide scholarships to Saint Paul School, however you cannot designate a specific student.
We ask you to please consider making a meaningful and impactful gift to the Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund today. The process is simple. Learn more about the fund and make your gift online at emmausroadscholarship.org.
