Give during The Great PUCS Serve-A-Thon
PUCS gives back to the community. Our annual fundraiser, The Great PUCS Serve-A-Thon, happens each May. This is an exciting adventure of service to our community in which the Lord has so graciously placed us. It has proven to be our most successful opportunity to raise money for general school support and scholarship while engaging the community around us.
You can contribute by:
- Sponsoring a student
- Recruiting corporate sponsors
Give 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. Additionally, our new Preschool program is also eligible for PKSO EITC tax credits.
To learn more about how your business can support scholarships and receive tax credits, please contact Zach Bender in the PUCS Development Office at (412) 244-1779 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply for EITC or OSTC tax credits, please submit the Electronic Single Application from the Department of Community and Economic Development’s website. For technical support during the application process, please contact DCED Customer Service at 1-800-379-7448.
Give through the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund
Previously the EITC/OSTC tax credits were available exclusively to businesses. Individuals can now donate through the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund.
