Give a Scholarship through GO for Catholic Schools
Tax deadline December 31
The Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarship Act (“Scholarship Act”) allows individuals and businesses to receive Oklahoma state income tax credits for donating to a scholarship granting organization.
The GO Catholic Schools Scholarship Fund makes a Catholic school education more affordable and accessible for all children.
What makes GO such an attractive tool for you is that individuals, married couples, and businesses earn a state income tax credit worth up to 75% of the amount contributed through GO!
That tax credit dramatically lowers the net cost of your contribution to Catholic Schools through GO, essentially allowing you to turn some of your state income taxes into a gift of scholarships for our Catholic Schools.
You can still deduct your entire donation to GO as a charitable contribution.
Assuming you itemize deductions, your charitable contribution to GO reduces your federal and state income taxes by reducing the amount of your adjusted gross income.

St John Catholic School benefits through the volunteer and financial support of parents, relatives, the parish, students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts of time and funds are appreciated and vital to the maintenance and growth of our school. The gifts, no matter what size, enable St John Catholic School to offset the cost differences between our tuition and actual expenses. We are grateful for this support and commitment that enriches our school and the future of our students.

The annual fund is an opportunity for a donor to give and to receive no goods or services in return, making this 501(c)(3)charity donation a tax benefit. The Annual Fund offers this benefit and tuition does not. Some companies may match Annual Fund Donations which may double your donation.
Many corporations and companies have a matching funds/ gift program that can double and sometimes triple your gift to St. John Catholic School, Bartlesville, OK . The program is often offered to employees and retirees of the company. Please check with your corporation or Company and consider giving through this generous program.

CAPITAL and ENDOWMENT FUNDS
Capital Funds support new construction and renovation projects for St John Catholic School's present Building project. The Endowment secures the ongoing needs and growth of the students, staff, and campus and looks to our future financial security.
Scholarships are available for students through Memorial and Honor gifts donated by friends of St John School. This is meaningful way to honor or memorialize those who value the excellent education available others. Those who wish to extend that education to others may give the principal a call to see how you may set up or contribute to a scholarship. You are also invited to support GO scholarships
Support our school with Memorial or Honor gifts, in the name of a loved one to celebrate them personally, their birthday, anniversary, or graduation with funds, a sign or plaque, room, playground - sport equipment, landscaping, or awards. This is most timely with our ongoing expansion. A notification of the gift is sent to the family members or the honoree including the donors name but with no mention of the amount.
