Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC)

Your Pennsylvania Tax Credit Can Help Provide a Classical Education for a Future Leader

Support Regina Coeli Academy and receive a tax credit for your business: Tax credits are available to eligible businesses contributing to a Scholarship Organization, an Educational Improvement Organization, and/or a Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization.

EITC is a program that created a means for the business community to be involved with education, allowing the business community to support students of non-public schools by directing their tax payments through local non-profits as tuition assistance subsidies.

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC), provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship or 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 400,000 in tax credits annually. More importantly, the EITC provides children and families with a choice in their education and a chance in life. -Reach Foundation
