EITC Tax Credit Program

PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program ( EITC )


Pennsylvania businesses can redirect tax dollars and help Plumstead Christian School.

PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) could be a tool for your business and a way to help the school. This unique program provides companies with a 75 percent tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship or educational improvement institution. The tax credit increases to 90 percent 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.

At PCS, the funds received through EITC are applied to scholarships. Over the years, PCS has been able to help a number of students with money to attend school. That has gone a long way to keep children in the classroom to prepare them to serve God and spread the Gospel.

Learn more about this program and how it can help your business and PCS. We are happy to work with your tax adviser to develop the best way for you to benefit from EITC. Contact the school for more detailed information.
