Support the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund Growing Minds Creating Futures Program through Ohio Tax Credits
Your participation in the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund supports our scholarship program – and our future – in countless ways; and best of all, your thoughtful generosity gives families access to quality education and the option to choose the best school for their children.
Through the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund, you can now contribute funds that will be used to provide scholarships for students to attend a private school or homeschooling expenses, and you will receive a 100% Ohio income tax credit of up to $750 against your 2023 state tax liability. In other words, the state of Ohio allows you to “spend” some of the state income taxes you must pay anyway to provide scholarships for students seeking an education of their choice. The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is a win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and NOSF.
