The Alabama Future Workforce Initiative (AFWI) supports the career-technical dual enrollment program that provides an opportunity for high school students to earn both high school and college credit for approved courses taken through one of 24 institutions in the Alabama Community College System. The AFWI is a gateway for donors to provide scholarships to eligible students for the cost of tuition, fees, books, and supplies associated with career-technical dual enrollment classes. Such classes include training in high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand career fields such as manufacturing, welding, allied health, construction, aviation maintenance, and industrial engineering, to name a few.
In addition to financially contributing to training Alabama’s future workforce, your generous donation may qualify you for up to a 50% state tax credit (See FAQ for more information).
For tax years commencing Jan. 1, 2015, and thereafter, the Alabama Future Workforce Initiative (AFWI) (Act 2014-147) allows a taxpayer who files a state income tax return (and is not a dependent of another taxpayer) to claim a tax credit for donating to the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education in support of the Career-Technical Dual Enrollment Program. The donor may be eligible to receive up to 50 percent of the total donation back in the form of a tax credit.
