EITC Donations

What is EITC?


EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit) was enacted by the Pennsylvania State Legislature in 2003. It provides a tax credit to corporations who make donations to state-approved scholarship organizations that open doors of opportunity.

Why Donate Through EITC?


Woodland Hills Foundation is an approved scholarship organization. Eligible businesses can
receive a tax credit equal to 75% of their contribution to the. This credit is
increased to 90% if the business commits to give the same amount for two consecutive years. In effect, it costs businesses a dime to give a dollar.

By making a tax deductible donation through the EITC program, not only do you receive a reduction in your tax liability, but your company is making a positive impact in our community by supporting the enriching educational programs in the Susquehanna Township School District.

EITC provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations to approved educational scholarship organizations. The tax credit increases to 90% if a company commits to making the same donation for two consecutive years. A business paying qualifying taxes in PA can receive up to $750,000 in tax credits annually. The state government allocates tax credits for education programs each year on a first-come, first-served basis until the credits run out.
