What is the

ELCA Fund?

The GOAL Program is a remarkable and important opportunity provided to Georgians by our elected officials.


In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!

This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to Georgia GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit– in other words, by contributing with dollars you must spend anyway- you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to become of part of the ELCA family.

Tax Credit Limits Based on Filing Status

  • Single individual or head of household – up to $1,000

  • Married couple filing a joint return – up to $2,500

  • Married couple filing separate returns – up to $1,250

  • S corporation shareholder, LLC member, or partnership partner – up to $10,000

  • NEW Opportunity for 2022: S corporation, LLC, or partnership that elects to pay tax at the entity level – up to 75% of Georgia income tax liability

  • C corporation or Trust – up to 75% of annual Georgia income tax liability

How Does This Help Our School?

You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide Georgia children with Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL)? When you redirect your Georgia income taxes to GOAL, you can designate that the contribution be used to provide financial aid at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. Our school is then able to:


     • Increase the amount of financial aid that can be offered to new students

     • Preserve more of our existing financial aid to assist families already enrolled

     • Increase the funds available to improve educational and extracurricular offerings

     • Further our mission by reaching more families desiring Christian education

The ELCA Fund is a yearly fundraising appeal to bridge the gap between the total cost of operating our school and tuition revenue.  Contrary to popular belief, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student.  It takes tuition and charitable donations to provide the distinctive qualities that ELCA offers including smaller classes, exemplary teachers, exceptional academics, fine arts, and athletic programs, more personal attention, and an unapologetically Christian foundation for our students.  Also, gifts to the ELCA Fund are tax-deductible where tuition is not.





Gifts to the ELCA Fund - Excellence supplements our operating budget and provides unrestricted resources for the school's immediate needs.  These needs include faculty/staff development, technology, program support for all levels of the school, and facility maintenance.   


Gifts to the Families Helping Families Fund provides needs-based tuition assistance to current and new families who desire Kingdom Education for their children.   




Every gift makes a difference, regardless of the amount.  For some families, the gift could be as small as $5 - $10.  For others, it could be hundreds or thousands of dollars.  Giving comes from the heart.  We encourage you to pray and give according to your means to support our ministry.  Also, increased participation in giving by the ELCA community, including our ministry team, faculty/staff, parents, and alumni helps pave the way for potential future support from outside organizations and charitable foundations.




ELCA accepts gifts in a number of different ways including cash, credit cards, appreciated stock, and matching gifts.  ELCA is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, therefore gifts to the school are tax-deductible as provided by law (please consult your accounting professional for additional information).  If you would like to make a gift, please contact Al Hosford in the Advancement Office at (678) 818-1031 or email Al Hosford.
