Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program
Support Scholarships for Gwynedd-Mercy Academy Elementary Students through the PENNSYLVANIA Tax Credit Programs
Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) are unique tax credit programs in Pennsylvania. They enable qualifying businesses and individuals in Pennsylvania to designate their state liability to education, and more specifically to GMA.
For individual and business tax credit contributions, our school works with Business Leaders Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS), and the Henkels Foundation. These organizations work within the State of Pennsylvania guidelines to raise scholarship income for qualified students attending elementary and secondary schools in the Philadelphia area.
For more information on how your tax dollars could benefit the current and future students of GMA, go to the Business Leaders for Catholic Education website. A sample donation and tax credit calculation is below:
GMA is so grateful for the increased participation and dollars directed through the EITC/OSTC programs. These funds play a key role in helping our students achieve their educational dreams!
