PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)

About the Program

The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program allows donors to support the Y in powerful ways while receiving tax credits of up to 90% of their donation, which can be applied against their Pennsylvania personal income tax or business lax liability.

Eligible individuals and companies who wish to participate may become members of one of our LLCs with a 2-year commitment. Our LLCs fund pre-k and teen leadership programs, giving you unique ways to support the community.
