do this special mitzvah for a child.

Do I Qualify?


Business Applicants: Businesses of all sizes that pay PA state taxes may qualify to participate, including LLC's, S-Corps, C-Corps, and Partnerships.

Individual Applicants: Individuals that pay PA state taxes may qualify to participate through a Special Purpose Entity. To expedite the process, a Special Purpose Entity has been created on behalf of the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools called Jewish Scholarship LLC. These LLC's serve as a pass-through for tax dollars to the Jewish day school of your choice.

When Do I Apply?


APPLICATIONS MAY ONLY BE SUBMITTED ON JULY 3, 2017. Applications may NOT be submitted before July 3rd. Applications are selected randomly by lottery until the available tax credits are depleted. The remaining applications are placed on a wait list.
