PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)
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.
