State Tax Credit Programs
Businesses that give private-school scholarships to eligible children can receive a state tax credit from Pennsylvania's EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit) and OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit) programs.
A Pennsylvania business may direct up to $750,000 of its Pennsylvania state tax dollars directly to Penn Charter’s financial aid program and receive a tax credit – 75 percent for a one-year gift and 90 percent for gifts given in two consecutive years. Read more about EITC/OSTC giving to Penn Charter.
