Fostering Success Tax Credit

In Georgia, there are over 11,000 youth participate in the foster care system on a given day. However, thanks to the Fostering Success Tax Credit, also known as the Qualified Foster Child Donation Credit, your tax dollars can now bring new hope for youth currently in foster care and transitioning out of foster care.

As a Georgia taxpayer, you can redirect your taxes to CHRIS 180 to support youth in or have been in foster care to receive the support, services and care they need to thrive. With an initial annual cap of $20 million, donations received through the program will support our programs that provide guidance and support for youth in foster care and those who have transitioned out of foster care. When you participate, you receive a 100% tax credit for your state income tax bill for your contribution. More information
