EITC/OSTC

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)

Pennsylvania businesses can earn significant state-tax credits by contributing to education organizations registered with the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Through the EITC program, a qualified business can make a donation to Nazareth Academy High School (through Holy Family Foundation) and receive tax credits equal to a percentage of their gift. The EITC enables companies to support local schools instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg. Large and small businesses are eligible to participate, with contributions ranging from a few hundred dollars to more than $750,000.

Nazareth Academy High School is included under Holy Family Foundation, which is an approved Scholarship Organization (SO). For more information visit New PA for the Business Guidelines.

Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC)

Pennsylvania businesses can earn significant state-tax credits by contributing to education organizations registered with the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC). Through the OSTC program, a qualified business can make a donation to Nazareth Academy High School (through Holy Family Foundation) and receive tax credits equal to a percentage of their gift. The OSTC enables companies to support local schools, like NAHS, instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg. Large and small businesses are eligible to participate, with contributions ranging from a few hundred dollars to a maximum of $750,000.

Business contributions are then used by NAHS to provide tuition assistance in the form of grants to eligible students residing within the boundaries of a low-achieving school to attend another public school outside of their district or nonpublic school. A low-achieving school is defined as a public elementary or secondary school ranking in the bottom 15 percent of their designation as an elementary or secondary school based upon combined math and reading Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) scores.

Nazareth Academy High School falls under Holy Family Foundation, which is an approved Scholarship Organization (SO) in the OSTC program. For more information, visit New PA for the Business Guidelines.
