We are excited to offer you a new option to support students attending Lima Central Catholic High School! Even better, you can do it at no cost to yourself. Here’s how:

What is a Scholarship Granting Organization? 

A Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) is an organization that receives contributions from donors and grants educational scholarships to eligible students in the State of Ohio. Donors (Individuals and entities) that contribute to Ohio certified SGOs can receive a tax credit through the Ohio Tax Credit Program. The Ohio Tax Credit Program was enacted in 2021 as part of Ohio House Bill 110.

What is the Thunderbird Scholarship Granting Organization?

In May of 2023, the Thunderbird Scholarship Granting Organization was established. The Thunderbird Scholarship Granting Organization (Thunderbird SGO) is a new opportunity for donors who wish to support students at LCC by taking advantage of the Ohio Tax Credit Program. Contributions to the Thunderbird SGO will help fund the LCC educational experience and will be awarded as scholarships to eligible Lima Central Catholic students.

How does it work?

The Thunderbird SGO was created to allow donors to make unrestricted contributions to benefit students attending Lima Central Catholic High School while also receiving eligibility for a tax credit. It is a dollar for dollar credit but is limited to  $750 for an individual or $1,500 if married filing jointly or the related State of Ohio tax liability.
