About Us

The SGO Program allows individuals and businesses to reduce or eliminate their state taxes by funding Scholarships for families wanting a quality, Christian education.


Who We Are: There are five main SGO organizations in Indiana authorized to administer the SGO program. We work with various Lutheran and other Christian schools and have a General Fund for those wanting to support families regardless of the school. Each non-public school chooses the SGO organization that donors will use to facilitate gifts.

The Lutheran SGO is a separately incorporated, 501(c)3 charitable organization and are approved by the Internal Revenue Service to receive tax-advantaged contributions. Our Tax ID number is 45-4856406. We are also recognized as a “scholarship granting organization” under Indiana Code 20-51-1-7 for “school scholarship programs” certified by the Indiana Department of Education under Indiana Code 20-51-3-1. We are authorized to make application on behalf of the donor with the Indiana Department of Revenue for a tax credit for this contribution under Indiana Code 6-3.1-30.5.

Who we Work With: The Lutheran SGO of Indiana is open to any accredited Christian school with the ability to award SGO Scholarships in Indiana that shares our Christian faith and values. See our List of Schools.
