As a result of legislation passed in 2021, Ohio taxpayers who wish to support Catholic education in Ohio now have the opportunity to receive a tax credit against Ohio income tax liability for cash contributions made to certified organizations that grant scholarships to K-12 students, including students attending Catholic schools.

The Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund has been established by the Diocese of Youngstown as a scholarship granting organization to allow interested donors to reduce their Ohio income tax liability on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $750 per person per year ($1,500 if married filing jointly) by providing donors with a tax credit against their Ohio income tax liability. For details, see our flyer with frequently asked questions. Donations made by April 15th can be counted for the previous year's taxes.

Donations to the Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund will be utilized to award scholarships to students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Youngstown with a priority to support low-income families that seek high quality educational opportunities for their children.

Donations may be designated to support Catholic education throughout the Diocese of Youngstown or to support Catholic education at a specific school.

Donate online below or download the Contribution Form and send in with your payment to: Office of Catholic Schools, Diocese of Youngstown, 144 W. Wood St., Youngstown, Ohio 44503. 

The Diocese of Youngstown Catholic Schools are dedicated to providing students and families with an excellent educational experience that nurtures faith, inspires learning, fosters service, and builds leadership for building the kingdom of God. Find out more.
