PA Tax Credits
The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program allows businesses to redirect their tax dollars and give them to DC rather than the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
EITC is a program unique to Pennsylvania that gives companies a 90% tax credit that can then be directed to a scholarship organization to be used specifically for families who qualify for financial aid. Currently, DC distributes $1.3 million in financial aid to families and EITC funds provide the much needed resources for this program.
DC would like to ask you to consider your company’s contribution to DC through this program by submitting an application to the state. Applications for school year 2014-2015 are now available online.
For more information you can email Kristen Paulson, Director of Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your application for these funds has great impact on DC and our student in need of financial assistance.
The Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) was approved by the State of Pennsylvania in August 2012. OSTC enables eligible students who live in a distressed school district to apply for one of these scholarships to attend a private school. Much like EITC, companies that apply can receive a 90% tax credit to be designated to a private school for an opportunity scholarship to qualifying students.
This program is a great use of tax dollars to support private education for families who live in a school district that is not performing.
The OSTC application for the 2014-2015 school year can be found online. Please consider helping us provides these funds for current families and prospective families who qualify.
