MO Scholars Inaugural Year
The inaugural year of MO Scholars—Missouri’s tax credit program providing scholarships to families of children attending private institutions—was a success…and we have you to thank for it! Your willingness to participate in this new endeavor has made an impact that will last an eternity, as children throughout the state are now getting a quality education and hearing the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ at LCMS schools.
The Missouri District was able to secure more than $479,000 in funds in 2022, which resulted in 100 children in 23 Lutheran Schools receiving a full or partial scholarship for the current school year. More than a third of these recipients are experiencing their very first year in a Lutheran school, making MO Scholars a wonderful tool for growing God’s Kingdom.
We look forward to expanding the reach of MO Scholars in 2023. Along with these original 100 recipients, we’ll add additional students and their families for the 2023-24 school year. We welcome your participation in the MO Scholars program again in 2023 and thank you for walking with these students.
The tax credit reservation system for this current calendar year is up and running once more. The process can begin at mo.lcms.org/mo-scholars. Again, thank you for walking with the Missouri District and using your tax dollars to change the life of a child, we look forward to your continued support and participation in helping to change lives one child at a time.
