EITC–Corporate Giving

Help transform the future for Saint Joseph School students by participating in corporate giving through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. EITC benefits Saint Joseph School students by providing them with financial aid and the opportunity to receive an outstanding Catholic education that they otherwise may not have been able to afford.

Your participation means that you will be rerouting your tax dollars to benefit education. Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 90% of your contribution for a two year commitment, and a 75% credit for a one year commitment. Your contribution also qualifies as a charitable contribution which reduces the business’s net income for state and federal taxes, therefore saving the business money. This program is a win, win!
