You can direct your state taxes to our students and eliminate 75% of what you owe.

St. Pius V School has dozens of families apply for the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship each year. Now we need your help to make sure funds are available to support them!

As a donor to St. Pius V School through the Tax Credit Scholarship Program (TCS), you could help children from low income households receive a quality Catholic education while dramatically reducing or eliminating your Illinois state income tax.

Not only will you receive a 75% credit on your state taxes, but now through February 29, 2020 other generous donors will match your donation at a 2-1 rate!

Your gift of $100, for example, would reduce your Illinois taxes by $75 and give St. Pius V School a $300 donation!
Empower Illinois has complete instructions at empowerillinois.org/donors/donate to guide you in setting up
your donation.

 

Illinois Tax Credit Scholarships Help Families / Becas de Crédito Tributario para Familias de Illinois

Information meeting / Reunión informativa
January 9 / 9 de Enero, 6:00-7:00 pm
Holy Trinity High School (1443 W. Division St.)
De La Salle Institute (3434 S. Michigan Ave.)
Marist High School (4200 W. 115th St.)

Illinois has an excellent program to help families from low-income households choose the best school for their children. The tax credit scholarship was launched last year and supports a number of students at St. Pius V School.

A través de la ley “Invest in Kids Act” están disponibles becas de crédito tributario para niños de los grados K-12, de hogares de bajos ingresos que quieran asistir a escuelas privadas, como la de San Pío V. Este programa comenzó hace dos años y muchas familias en nuestras escuelas católicas se están beneficiando. Las becas ofrecidas a través del programa podrían cubrir hasta un 100% de la colegiatura y tarifas elegibles por un año y son autorizadas por orden de llegada. Únase a nosotros para la reunión el 15 de diciembre o visite las páginas de web indicadas abajo. (La reunión será en español, con otra reunión en inglés, si es necesario.)

The application has several steps and must be done online but we can help you complete the process. Even if you received a scholarship for this current year, you must apply again to be eligible for next year!

Please participate in one of the information meetings on January or visit the websites of the two organizations that will handle your scholarship application:

  • The application process for the Tax Credit Scholarship through Empower Illinois will open on January 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm. For all the information on applying, please click here.
