Direct your Georgia income tax dollars into a donation to DHEF

Put Your Tax Dollars to Work at Druid Hills High School!

Georgia taxpayers can turn their Georgia income taxes into a dollar-for-dollar donation to the Druid Hills Education Foundation by taking advantage of the PEACH Education Tax Credit. This program, an initiative of the Georgia Foundation for Public Education, has been funded by the legislature with $15 million, which is being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Student Participation Fund: Seed funding to support student access to arts, athletic, academic, and other enrichment activities.
