Education Improvement Tax Credits – EITC

Convert your business tax dollars into support for BCP Education initiatives
by enrolling in the Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.

EITC provides companies with a 75% state tax credit for donations to an approved non-profit educational improvement organization that enhances the lives of children in their immediate communities. The tax credit increases to 90% if the company commits to making the same donations for two consecutive years. For more information, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development website (linked here).
