Participation is a simple two step process - (1) Get approved to donate and (2) Donate. Each of these steps require a simple form to be filled in.

When GeorgiaTAP handles the donation process, it can file and track preapproval electronically and keep inform the donor of various stages - "Preapproval Submitted", "Approval Received", "Donation Received", "Scholarship Issued" and "Tax Receipt Ready".
