Donor Resources

In addition to other services for Indiana students and households, the Institute for Quality Education (IQE) operates a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). The SGO awards scholarships to students enrolled in one of our Partner Schools for grades K-12 from Indiana households that meet the income eligibility guidelines. The funds for the scholarships are raised through private donation. Individuals or businesses that donate to the SGO receive tax credits equal to fifty-percent (50%) of the amount donated.

To initiate a donation, please select from the methods below and you will be directed to the corresponding online form.


Attention Donors

On July 1, 2016 $9.5 million in tax credits will be available. Donors will earn a 50% state tax credit on gifts made through Institute for Quality Education as long as they are received before the tax credits run out. Last fiscal year all of the tax credits were exhausted early February 2016, so we encourage you to make your gift early.

We appreciate all gifts made to the Institute for Quality Education. These funds go a long way to give Hoosier kids access to a high-quality education, and we want to ensure all donors receive their tax credit.

Please contact IQE's Program Director at mary.eaker@i4qed.org with questions.


Links to Donate

* The tax credits from a stock or securities donation will be based upon the cash value of the completed transaction - we will liquidate the donated items immediately upon receipt.
