Educational Tax Credits
On May 7, 2001, by an overwhelming bi-partisan majority, Pennsylvania made history by becoming the first state to pass an education tax credit aimed at corporations.
The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC), provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship or educational improvement organization. The tax credit increases to 90% if the company commits to making the same donations for two consecutive years. A business paying taxes in Pennsylvania can receive up to $750,000 in tax credits annually and $200,000 for the Pre-K program. More importantly, the EITC provides children and families with a choice in their education and a chance in life.
Scholarship Organizations provide scholarships to children to attend the schools of their choice.
Educational Improvement Organizations
Educational Improvement Organizations fund innovative programs in public schools across the Commonwealth.
Pre-K Scholarship Organizations
Pre-K Scholarship Organizations fund scholarships to children so families have the ability to choose the pre-k that best fits the needs of their child.
