Scholarship Granting Organization
Tax Credit


1. an opportunity to support students in need with a gift that costs nothing


Our Mission


Who We Are

We exist to provide scholarships for students from economically disadvantaged communities while helping donors benefit from a dollar-for-dollar matching tax credit under Ohio’s new Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) tax credit program.

The Need

In Columbus, Ohio,  73% of African-American children live in an area of “Low” or “Very Low” opportunity compared with 29% of white children. 

COSF exists to provide these opportunities to students in need and put all of life success back in their reach.

Donor Experience


"The educational quality provided by these schools is excellent. Growing up in an educator's home, I've been cognizant of the need for excellence in education; these schools are scratching the itch. It's easy to participate - just follow the instructions, get your receipt, and attach it to your Ohio tax return. This is a great way to direct some of your Ohio Income Tax to students in need and know it will be used well. If you have Ohio tax liability, why not direct it to a good cause?"
