Credible and Accountable:

Give a Tax Credit Scholarship

The Alabama Accountability Act (AAA) authorizes donation-funded scholarships for low income students to attend qualified private schools. These scholarships are granted by specially created Scholarship Granting Organizations (or SGO) for the sole purpose of taking private donations and awarding them to low income students in schools which have qualified to receive funds directly from the SGO. Cornerstone Schools has this relationship with Scholarships for Kids, a Birmingham-based SGO. Learn more about Scholarships for Kids and other ways you can get involved with Cornerstone.
