The Educational Improvement Tax Credit potentially allows businesses to significantly reduce their state tax liability by contributing to a nonprofit educational improvement or nonprofit scholarship organization, like the Pennsbury Society.

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit is administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development.

EITC provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations they make to a non-profit educational improvement organization. The tax credit increases to 90% 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.

More importantly, the EITC provides children and families with a choice in their education and a chance in life. Through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, Pennsbury Manor receives much needed financial assistance to provide an award-winning, “hands-on-history” approach to learning for our 10,000+ annual student visitors.
