The University Fund at Sagamore
Thanks to Indiana’s tax credit program, your gift to University High School through a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) is a win-win. It benefits the school and earns you substantial tax credits.
Why Give to the University Fund at Sagamore?
The University Fund at Sagamore makes a University High School education a reality for worthy students whose families cannot afford tuition on their own. In the 2020-21 school year, contributions to the fund provided $2.765 million in need-based scholarships for 166 students whose families would not otherwise be able to afford a University education. To qualify for these need-based scholarships, students must come from households with an annual income of 300% or less of the Federal Free and Reduced Meal Program eligibility guidelines.
Indiana’s School Scholarship Tax Credit is available to individuals or corporations who donate to University High School through a state-certified Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). Funds donated through the Sagamore Institute (an SGO) to University High School are used as scholarships to attract high-caliber students who qualify for financial assistance. Individuals who make a contribution to the University Fund at Sagamore are eligible for a tax credit as defined by federal and state tax codes. Cash or non-cash assets may be donated.
