This might seem far away, but the work of passing a Scholarship Tax Credit program begins now.  There are several ways that you can help.

First, please follow EdChoice KY on Facebook and Twitter.  The Catholic Conference is part of the EdChoice KY coalition, a diverse group of individuals and organizations who want to give more educational opportunities to Kentucky students. EdChoice KY’s Facebook and Twitter pages provide useful information on Scholarship Tax Credits and how such a program would help Kentucky families.  Please follow these pages and share them with your friends and family. We could easily reach thousands of Kentuckians if every person who reads this post invited five people to follow EdChoice KY.

Second, please consider having us visit your parish, school or community group to present on Scholarship Tax Credits.  Over the past few months, we have presented to parent groups, school boards, and civic groups on the issue. If you are interested, please contact Andrew Vandiver at avandiver@ccky.org.

Third, ask your parish or school to circulate the bulletin insert above. It is an easy way to connect members of your community with EdChoice KY.  If you need an electronic copy, please contact Andrew Vandiver at avandiver@ccky.org.

Thank you for your advocacy.
