What is Sagamore Institute?

Sagamore Institute is an Indianapolis-based public policy research organization that promotes education excellence.  Sagamore's Scholarships for Education Choice program is certified by the State of Indiana as a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO).

Why Donate?

  • ​​​​​​Do you believe that Indiana Families should be able to choose the best educational setting for their K-12 students? 
  • Do you believe that their choices should not be limited by their income level?
  • Would you like to support scholarships for eligible students enrolled in participating schools across the state of Indiana, or perhaps designate a donation for students of a particular school?

If so, the tax credit scholarship program may be just the investment for you.  In addition to supporting Indiana students, you will receive a state tax credit equal to 50% of the amount of your donation.  Your donation also qualifies as a charitable deduction on your federal tax return.
