You make the difference!

We’re thankful that God has given us this opportunity to facilitate the hope of a Christian education for low income children in Virginia. Your help makes that a reality! When you make a tax credit donation, we use those funds to award scholarships to eligible students in qualified Christian schools. Thank you for ensuring a Christian education is available for many more Virginia students. Gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.


Step 1: Complete a Preauthorization Form. Click here for more information.

  • Part I    Please be sure to provide the requested information for each line of this section.

Reminder: If a donor is married and contributing on an individual basis, only one Tax ID and one Donor name is allowed per form.  If a donor is contributing as a business the FEIN number must be used on Line 2 instead of a social security number. If donating as a business, place the legal business name on line 4a and the principle contact name on Line 4b. Lines 5, 6, and 7 should be completed with business or individual demographic information.

  • Part II

Line Item 1: Enter the total amount of the donation you are submitting for tax credit.

Line Item 2: Calculate 65% of the total amount on Line A and enter that amount in the space provided.

Individual donors can give as little as $500 and as much as $125,000 annually.  Businesses, including sole proprietors, may give with no limits. Both types of donors receive a 65% tax credit on their Virginia state income tax return for the year the donation is made.

  • Part III    Print your Name, Sign and Date the form.

Step 2: Submit Preauthorization Form directly to Renewanation or to the Virginia Department of Education.

Step 3: Once the VDOE receives the form, it will be reviewed for approval.  Following approval, an Approval Letter will be mailed to you at the address provided on your Preauthorization form.

Step 4:  Once you have your Approval Letter, mail it and your donation to RENEWANATION within 180 days of the date of the Approval Letter. The donation amount can be paid all at once or can be divided into multiple payments as long as the total donation is paid within the 180-day period. (Reminder: the 180 days starts as of the date on your Approval Letter.) Should the total amount paid and the amount of the donation specified on the Approval Letter differ at the end of the 180 days, your tax credit certificate will be adjusted to reflect the actual amount paid.

Step 5: Upon receipt of your donation and Approval Letter, RENEWANATION will promptly report your payment to the VDOE on your behalf and a tax credit certificate will be mailed to you by the VDOE.
