ECS SGO Program
Evansville Christian School participates in the Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program that was established to incentivize private donations to fund educational choice for families who income qualify attending non-public schools.
Donors make donations directly to the Institute for Quality Education (IQE), our partner Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), and designate ECS as the recipient school.

How to Donate to the ECS SGO Program
At ECS, we partner with the Institute for Quality Education (IQE) for the SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization) program to provide scholarships for students to attend ECS. When you give, you designate your gift for Evansville Christian School through IQE, and they will apply your gift to the state for your tax credit and will issue your income tax receipt.
We assure you that by selecting Evansville Christian as your designated school when you give through IQE, students at ECS will benefit directly from your generosity of providing scholarships to make Christian education accessible for their families.
There is no limit on the amount that you can give, but the state does limit the amount available for the credits. See available Indiana tax credits.
