Dutchmen Education Foundation EICT Funds

The Dutchmen Education Foundation has been approved for the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit so business and corporations can receive a tax credit of $.75 for every dollar the business donates to the Dutchmen Education Foundation. If a business agrees to make the same monetary contribution to the Foundation for two consecutive years, the business will receive a credit equal to 90% of its contribution. For more information about this valuable tax credit, contact the district office at 717-867-7600.

Two examples of EITC funds at work include the Pierce Family Greenhouse and the Heritage Poultry Studio.
