PA Tax Credit Programs

Turn your Tax Dollars into Tuition Assistance to Support TPS

Did you know that through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (PA EITC) and the Pennsylvania Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (PA OSTC), businesses and individuals in the Commonwealth can earn a tax credit for up to 90% of  Pennsylvania taxes when they make a donation to a scholarship organization such as The Philadelphia School. Funds received under these programs provide direct support to our need-based tuition assistance program.

Our goal is to provide equal access to our progressive educational experience for children in the Philadelphia area. Every year, the number of students applying for financial aid increases and continues to exceed available funds. Even with close to $2 million in tuition assistance awarded each year, TPS is not able to meet the full need of all qualified students. Individual and corporate support, through EITC and OSTC donations, is essential to achieving this goal.

Please consider making a TPS education possible for more qualified students through these powerful programs. Learn about how your tax dollars can support TPS by reading this informational PDF.
