INTERESTED IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS?
Become a Tax Credit Participant
One of the most crucial funding sources of financial aid for students comes from The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. This program allows businesses and individuals to direct their PA state income taxes to students instead of sending those tax dollars to Harrisburg. It is a simple and easy process that will turn the tax dollars that you already owe into scholarships and financial aid. When you make an EITC contribution, your tax dollars make a difference in your community.
