DEVELOPMENT

EITC/OSTC

At Trinity High School, we value the generosity of corporate partners and families who support students through the Pennsylvania Tax Credit Program, which provides need-based financial aid scholarships for qualifying students. These programs are one of the most effective means of supporting equal access to academic excellence. This academic year we have 122 students who are benefitting with over $378,000 in Pennsylvania Education Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) aid. In addition, $109,500 was made available to families in the form of tuition assistance through Special Purpose Entity (SPE) contributions.

These programs, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, can help you directly impact a Trinity education by allowing you to designate tax credits to our school through the Neumann Scholarship Foundation, Bridge Educational Foundation, and Bravo Educational Foundation. Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 75% of your contribution and up to 90% if your company commits to the program for two consecutive years.

  • Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) – This program provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to a Scholarship Organization, an Educational Improvement Organization, and/or a Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization.
  • Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC) -​​ This program provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to an Opportunity Scholarship Organization (OSCT). Business contributions are then used to provide tuition assistance in the form of scholarships to eligible students.All business applications for the EITC and OSTC programs are submitted online. Businesses must register first in order to apply.
  • You may personally join the PA Tax Credit Program – even if you do not own your own business through the Special Purpose Entity (SPE) Direct your personal Pennsylvania tax dollars to students attending Trinity High School. You can make a difference in the life of one of our students. Now individual taxpayers can designate personal state taxes to Trinity High School by joining a Special Purpose Entity (SPE).
