PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)

Did you know that your company can invest in our community and also improve your bottom line? By participating in Pennsylvania's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, you can earn state tax credits – and at the same time contribute to YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s acclaimed educational programs for underserved girls. YWCA’s STEM programs provide hands-on, project-based, collaborative learning experiences for girls. Content is intentionally connected to Pennsylvania Academic Standards so that it reinforces curriculum taught in school, prepares students to succeed academically, and bridges the gap between instruction and application. Support STEM programming in your community...while improving your business’s bottom line! 

What is EITC?  A PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) program that provides state tax credits to eligible businesses for charitable contributions made to YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.

Is my business eligible?  If you do business in Pennsylvania and pay any of several corporate taxes, the answer is YES! Contact YWCA Greater Pittsburgh to find out more.

How can I make EITC work for me and my business?  Visit the PA DCED website for EITC Guidelines and access to DCED’s electronic Single Application system. Once you are approved* by DCED, make your contribution to YWCA Greater Pittsburgh within 60 days. 

What’s the bottom line? Tax credits equal to 75% of your contribution up to a maximum of $750,000 per taxable year; can be increased to 90% of your contribution, if your business agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years.

*Applications are approved on a first-come-first-served basis by date received and approved until available tax credits are exhausted.
