Thank you for considering a gift to our SGO program for the 2019-20 school year! Donations made through our SGO program directly benefit financial aid. Last year we were able to award almost $140,000 in financial assistance to 21 Orchard students. It is our goal this year to increase the amount raised through our SGO program by 20%. This increase will allow us to provide financial assistance to more students who would otherwise not be able to afford an Orchard education.
On July 1st of this year, the number of Indiana tax credits has reset to $15 million for the SGO Program. Due to the program’s popularity across the state, we are encouraging our donors to consider giving early this year. Donating through the SGO program is still a great opportunity to reduce your Indiana State tax liability.
If you have any questions regarding the SGO program and how it benefits The Orchard please contact Deborah Thornburgh at 317-713-5731 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive an email receipt immediately after making your gift; this receipt acknowledges the initiation of the gift. A second receipt letter will be emailed to you in 7-10 days which will include the tax certification number needed to claim the credit on your state tax return.
Please contact us if you have questions about either receipt or about claiming your credit. If you would prefer that we mail a hard copy of the receipt letter that has your tax credit certification number please email us at email@example.com.
If you are making a large gift you may want to check with your bank or credit card company to assure that the gift is within their transaction limits.
