The beginning of a school year is always an incredible financial hurdle for many low-income families as they prepare their children with the supplies needed to learn in the classroom. The need for help with supplies will be even greater this year, with kids learning at home and unable to share supplies in the classroom.

What is the EITC Program?
The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (PA EITC) program allows businesses in the Commonwealth to earn a tax credit of up to 90% for certain Pennsylvania taxes when they make a donation to a "scholarship organization" or an "educational improvement organization," a special category under the state tax code.
Our Youth Enrichment Programs at the Allentown Corps is an approved EITC educational improvement program. Programs in our Allentown Corps provide structured recreational, educational and cultural opportunities for children, ages 6 - 15. Our programs operate year-round in our after-school and Summer classes. It is our intent to provide a beneficial learning experience that is fun and interesting to the children while supporting the curriculum of area schools.
Please call our Development Office at (610) 432-0129 for more information on how your organization can partner with us as part of the EITC program.
Thank you to our EITC Partners!
