What Is an SGO?

A Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that receives contributions from donors and grants educational scholarships to eligible students in South Dakota. Insurance companies that contribute to SGOs participating in the program can receive a tax credit. 

South Dakota Partners in Education (SDPE) is the SGO for granting tax-credit scholarships in the state of South Dakota. We partner with families, schools, donors, and the state of South Dakota to help empower families with educational choice.
