Dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $100K for scholarship contributions


Nebraska taxpayers can give hope to students at Pius X High School and claim a tax credit for up to half of your state tax liability or $100K (or $1M for estates and trusts). The Opportunity Scholarships Act (LB753) provides educational freedom to many Nebraska families who can’t afford the best school setting for their children.

  • Contributions made in 2024 can be claimed on your 2024 state income taxes.
  • Corporations, S corps, individuals, estates and trusts can claim a tax credit for a contribution made to Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska (OSN).

Diocese of Lincoln schools have partnered with Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska, a 501(c)(3) scholarship granting organization. Many students who plan to attend Pius X have applied for Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska, but we need more businesses and individuals to take advantage of the tax credit to help all the students seeking tuition assistance. To fully fund all the Pius X students hoping to receive OSN scholarships next school year, at least $325,000 in total contributions are needed.

Contributions can be designated to help students at up to two schools of your choice. If you would like to take advantage of the dollar-for-dollar tax credit while benefitting our students, please choose Pius X High School for your school selection. OSN scholarships will be awarded to eligible Pius X students in fall 2024 pursuant to funds available. Thank you for bringing hope to our families in need.
