Families who contribute to the Tax Credit scholarship will receive a tuition credit of 10% of the approved donation.  Note that the approved donation may be lower than your pledged amount, depending on whether total pledges in the state exceed $58 $100 million. For example, if you pledge $2,500 (max for married filing jointly) and the state approves $2,000, you would get a $200 discount on tuition. PLUS you may be eligible for the scholarship funds depending on eligibility criteria.
