The Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) is a credit that can be awarded to businesses for making contributions to Educational Improvement Organizations such as SWAN, and used against Pennsylvania income tax.

Businesses can donate up to $750,000 each year to Educational Improvement Organizations, and then claim 75 percent of that donation as a credit that offsets their state tax bill. The credit can increase to 90 percent if they commit to donating funds for two consecutive years.

SWAN: Scaling Walls a Note at a Time is a state-certified Educational Improvement Organization.

To make a contribution to SWAN and receive the Education Improvement Tax Credit, you must first register with the PA Department of Community & Economic Development. All first-time applications must be made on the day of July 1
