Students from low-income families, who would otherwise not have access to private school education, now have this opportunity. Supporters of the Anna Julia Cooper Scholarship Foundation make this possible for children in need AND realize a significant tax savings as a result.
The Anna Julia Cooper Scholarship Foundation (AJCSF) was established in 2013 to provide scholarships for students of limited resources, primarily from Richmond’s East End, to attend Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School, Trinity Episcopal School, Church Hill Academy, and other independent schools in Richmond, Virginia. Individuals and businesses who contribute to AJCSF, and who pay taxes in the Commonwealth of Virginia, are eligible to receive a 65% state tax credit as part of the Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credit program. The 65% tax credit is in addition to current state and federal tax deductions for monetary donations.
