Did you know that United Way of Chester County is a Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) approved organization?

The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) provides a PA state tax credit to businesses that donate to pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) scholarships through United Way of Chester County.

Supporting local kids through this program can cost your business nothing – and may even put money back in your pocket.

Once you are approved for the EITC, you are able to make a donation to United Way of Chester County for Pre-K scholarships, and then be reimbursed by the state through a PA state tax credit.

Tax credits for Pre-K Scholarship Organization donations (PKSO) are as follows:

  • 100% back for the first $10,000
  • 90% back for donations above $10,000, with a maximum donation level of $200,000 annually.
  • Full amount of the contribution is deductible for federal tax purposes as a charitable contribution, subject to charitable contribution rules.
