Gifts through the Pennsylvania EITC and OSTC Programs

Through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement and Opportunity Tax Credit Programs, businesses can donate scholarship dollars to approved schools and receive a tax credit equal to 75% of the contribution (90% if the business agrees to give the same amount for two consecutive years).

These gifts enable us to provide financial aid to students from low-income households or those living within the boundaries of failing school districts, making it possible for them to attend PUCS. Many thanks to the businesses who helped us last year. Click here for a list of businesses who support PUCS through PA EITC/OSTC.
