If you own or work for a company that pays corporate taxes to the state of Pennsylvania, your company could receive substantial tax credits AND provide scholarships for North Catholic High School students in need at the same time.
The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) are two programs that allow you to receive tax credits of up to 90% of your donation, made by giving through your business.
New businesses are able to apply July 1. Businesses already enrolled in the programs can begin applying May 15 and have until June 28.
The application process is online and easy. Visit the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s website for details on the application process and eligibility.
