Tax Credit Contributions

Your tax dollars can support local children

Through Pennsylvania’s Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, you can help local preschoolers and children in K-12 schools prepare for their future. The Learning Lamp accepts PKSO, EIO, SO, and OS EITC contributions. Your donation supports local children attending preschool and K-12 private schools, and funds interactive, engaging school and community workshops for children across the area.

The PKSO EITC donation offers businesses the best value with 100% credit for the first $10,000 donated and a 90% credit for gifts above that threshold. Through EITC, you can put your tax dollars to work in your own community!

Already an approved EITC donor?

Please consider donating to The Learning Lamp for the upcoming school year. We accept all categories but prefer PKSO and EIO.

Both Companies and Individuals can contribute to the EITC program!

Individual Taxpayers Qualify Too! Through the Special Purpose Entities category, individuals can now enjoy the same tax benefits as corporations. This program allows individuals to donate to the EITC program. To qualify, someone in your household must own a small business or work for a for-profit business. When you commit to a two-year donation you will receive a 90% tax credit for your donation, if you donate for one year, you will receive a 75% tax credit. The Central PA Scholarship Fund processes your gift and passes it through to The Learning Lamp, if you select us on your form.
