SGO Scholarship Fund Donations
If your family does not qualify for the School Choice Voucher Program or an SGO Scholarship award, please consider supporting the program. Individuals and corporations can donate to the SGO of Northeast Indiana and receive tax credit of 50% or more.
Donors should consult their tax advisors to determine tax consequences based upon their particular situation. The SGO of Northeast Indiana is administered by the Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend. St. Joseph School will need to solicit funds for the SGO in order to continue to assist our families in need. A one year award of at least $500 to a St. Joseph School student could then qualify them to continue their remaining years in our school on a full Indiana School Choice Voucher. Please see the link below for the SGO website if you're interested in making donations to St. Joseph Catholic School's fund.
