Through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, a business of any size can redirect its tax liability to an eligible Educational Improvement Organization (EIO), like Green Woods Charter School. In turn, we are able to provide a modern day education to our students, and you get up to 90% of that donated amount credited against your corporate state taxes. EITC dollars are used to support the outdoor learning spaces and field study programs that give students the opportunity to become immersed in learning outside of a traditional classroom.
EITC-EIO tax credits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no minimum to participate and businesses can receive up to $750,000 in tax credits annually. For a comprehensive list of PA taxes that EITC-EIO credits can be applied against, please click here to visit the Department of Community and Economic Development website.
