Redirect Your Georgia State Income Taxes & Reserve Your 2023 Tax Credit Now To Support An AJA Education!

Please join the AJA community and redirect your Georgia tax liability to support an AJA education! The state of Georgia has set aside a total of $120 million in tax credits for 2023! Your participation in the ALEF Fund can help us offer need-based scholarships to AJA students when financial need still remains high.

AJA has partnered with the ALEF Fund* to administer this special scholarship program. Any Georgia resident taxpayer can participate in the ALEF Fund. That designated amount, in turn, becomes a scholarship for an eligible student to attend Atlanta Jewish Academy, and you get a dollar for dollar tax credit.

*The ALEF Fund was established in 2008 by the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta in response to new state legislation when Georgia's General Assembly passed the Education Expense Credit law.

It is important that applications be filled out early, as we anticipate the cap being reached on January 2, 2023 due to the increase in the amounts. You may complete your application online by visiting

If you have any questions, or need any help completing your forms, please contact Sheli Feldman, AJA Director of ALEF Fund, at 678-298-5344.
