Businesses that participate in the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program have the power to direct their tax dollars to the future leaders of our community — our children. The process is as easy as one, two, three:

1) Businesses that pay taxes in the Commonwealth — including C corporations, S corporations, partnerships, LLCs, banks and title companies and businesses where owners elect “pass through options” on their tax returns — complete a simple online registration and then apply to participate in one (or all) of three educational tax credit programs that provide scholarships to children in preschools and grades K-12.

2) Upon approval, the business can receive a credit for up to 75 percent of their state tax liability the first year and up to 90 percent in the second year.

3) By making a gift to Chester County Historical Society, corporations approved for EITC funds support the Society’s educational programs serving thousands of area school children through museum visits and traveling trunk shows as well as the Society’s participation in the annual National History Day event.

For more information on making an EITC donation to the Society, please contact Beth Lindsay, Business and Operations Director, at 610-692-4800 ext. 203 or email at
