EITC Eligibility

Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program

BZ2_4337In 2001, by an overwhelming bi-partisan majority, Pennsylvania made history by becoming the first state to pass an education tax credit aimed at corporations and businesses.  This program provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship fund.  The tax credit increases to 90% if the company commits to making the same level of donation for two consecutive years.

By contributing to the Waldorf School of Philadelphia through the EITC program, your funds directly support funding for children in need to attend our school.  This is a great way for the business community to get more involved in education in their local communities.
