Student Growth Objective (SGO) Information Sheet

If you would like to consider re-allocating your State of Alabama tax dollars, then considering an SGO (Student Growth Objective) program might be something you should consider.  In a nutshell, Alabama allows for taxpayers to use their tax payments specifically towards private schools in the state.  Springwood School is a beneficiary of this plan.  To read more about the law, check out this link:  Alabama Accountability Act

The Alabama Accountability Act currently establishes an annual $30 million statewide limit on the tax credits. The credits will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, and may be carried forward for 3 years.
 
To register your tax credit contribution:
  1. Go to myalabamataxes.alabama.gov.
  2. Click on "Report a Donation to an SGO". 
  3. Choose a designated SGO Fund.
  4. Enter your donation amount. 
  5. Mail your check directly to the fund.
