Do I qualify? When do I apply?

By participating in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, businesses and individuals will not only know where their tax dollars are going, they will also decide how they are being spent, all while supporting Jewish education in our community.

If you're ready to make a difference, here is a step by step guide to applying.

Business Applicants

Businesses of all sizes that pay PA state tax may qualify, including LLC, S-Corp. C-Corp, and Partnerships. Applications are randomly selected until all available PA tax credits are assigned.

For assistance in new business applications feel free to contact Ellen Horowitz Matz, Director of Educational Improvement Tax Credit Programs at 215.832.0525 or at ematz@jewishphilly.org.

Read more about the process for business EITC contributions through the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia's website.

Individual Applicants

Individuals who pay PA state tax may qualify to participate through a Special Purpose Entity, an LLC through which an individual's PA tax dollars become tax credits for scholarship support.

Individual commitments can be made now. For more information, call Gwen Horowitz, Executive Director of Pennsylvania Education Partnership LLC at 610.668.0044 or gwen@paeitc.com.

Many Barrack families receive EITC scholarship funds. Please apply and help send deserving children to Barrack. Always consult with your accountant, financial advisor or CFO.
