TCS Partners with OCEN

TCS Partnering with Ohio Christian Network

Are you looking for ways to bless current students of TCS or prospective families who would love to have their child receive a Christian education? If so, we want to introduce you to a new program that could be a huge blessing to TCS and its families.

Taxpayers now have a virtually cost-free way to make a significant contribution to students of Temple Christian School. Thanks to Ohio’s new state tax credit, individuals who make a contribution to the Ohio Christian Education Network’s Scholarship Granting Organization (OCEN SGO) can receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit for up to $750. In other words, assuming that you have an equivalent Ohio tax liability, you will receive 100 percent of your contribution back when you file your taxes for the year. Since the tax credit is granted per taxpayer, married couples filing jointly may receive up to $1500 in credit if both spouses make a separate donation in their individual names.  Furthermore, you may designate your gift for TCS students only. 

TCS has chosen to partner with OCEN SGO because this organization seeks to protect the religious liberties of Christian Schools and improve access to a Gospel-centered education.

In collaboration with OCEN SGO, Temple Christian School will be able to award scholarships to help reduce the cost of tuition for qualifying families. The number of scholarships and the scholarship amounts will depend on the total gifts received and the number of families that apply. Scholarship application information can be found by clicking on Financial Assistance under the Admissions tab.

If you would like to donate this year and take advantage of this great opportunity, please visit the link provided.  You will find all of the information about the program, an informational video, and answers to FAQs. For those who choose to donate, please make sure that you select Temple Christian School as your school of choice from the drop-down menu.

We encourage you to speak with your tax professional to determine if contributing to the OCEN SGO is suitable for you and your family.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to bless others.
