Emmaus Road Scholarship

Turn your Tax Dollars Into Scholarships for Immaculate Conception School!

This is a great time of year to review your tax returns to see if you would have benefited from donating to the Emmaus Road Scholarship. Check line 8C on your Ohio IT 1040 form which will show the amount you owe the state as a taxpayer. If line 10 is greater than $0, you can reduce your liability on a dollar-for-dollar basis with a gift to the Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund, up to $750 or $1,500 if married and filing jointly. You can name Immaculate Conception School as the recipient. Last year (2022) we had 16 individual/couples name IC School as the recipient of their tax dollars totaling $15,495.00.
