Tax Credits and Non-Public School Scholarships

There is currently an effort under way through the introduction of LB 50 to make available state tax credits to individuals or corporations who would chose to make a contribution to eligible Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGO). These SGO's would utilize the funds collected to provide scholarships to students attending non-public schools in the State of Nebraska based on income eligibility.

While this bill will have a tough time getting through committee with current budget projections for the State of Nebraska, it is important for our school supporters to get behind the initiative and help it gain traction with our state politicians. Should this type of legislation get passed at some point in the future, it would greatly benefit our schools and their families by helping to make our schools more affordable.

Please take some time to read through the attached documents to get a better understanding of the bill. You will aso find a link below to the bill itself as well as an on-line petition. The more folks we can get electronically signing the petition the better.

Please consider calling or emailing your State Legislator and let them know of your support.

LB 50 will be heard in committee next Wednesday, February 16th at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1524 at the State Capitol.  It would be great to have a physical show of support. Please let me know if you have any additional questions, etc!
