Empower School Choice in Alabama

Improve a Child's Chance for Success

The government mandates that every child should be educated, but it remains the parents' right to choose the best options for their children. Practically, though, this has been true only for the well-to-do who can move to a neighborhood with a great school or pay private school tuition. Now, however, the people's representatives have created a clear path for change!

Children's Tuition Fund of Alabama (CTF AL) is a newly-approved Scholarship Granting Organization under the Alabama Accountability Act—school choice legislation that funds scholarships for qualifying low income students to attend the nonpublic school of their choice. In 2016, the Alabama Accountability Act allotted $30 million for state tax credits available to companies and individuals who donate to the tax credit scholarship program. Individuals, C corporations, S corporations, partnerships, and LLCs can donate.
