The ALEF Fund was established by Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta in 2008 in response to new state legislation when Georgia’s General Assembly passed the Education Expense Credit law to provide families in our state with access to better educational opportunities for their children. The ALEF Fund provides scholarships to pre-k, kindergarten, primary or secondary public school students who wish to attend participating Jewish private schools. It is the only organization in Georgia that provides student scholarships exclusively to Jewish preschools, day schools and high schools. Our guiding principle is to improve the affordability of Jewish education by awarding scholarship dollars to eligible students.
Through the ALEF Fund, you can support Jewish education in Georgia at virtually no cost to you through a dollar for dollar Georgia income tax credit received for your contribution. See our FAQ’s for more information.
