The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) - Special Purpose Entity (SPE) program offers you an incomparable opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child and support the overall excellence of the education that we provide to our students here at Sewickley Academy.
An excellent education provides the foundation for a life well-lived. Sewickley Academy educates young people from 41 different school districts in our region. One in four students receives financial support from the school which affords them the opportunity to attend.
This support achieves two goals:
- It ensures that we have a socio-economically diverse student body, which is important for all students.
- It allows us to create the robust educational environment that is vital to ensuring the quality of educational outcomes for our students. Bottom line: an investment in financial aid supports educational excellence for all students and ensures access to qualified students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through it's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) - Special Purpose Entity (SPE) program, provides eligible taxpayers an opportunity to support qualified educational institutions by designating Pennsylvania State tax dollars towards those schools’ financial aid programs. In return, eligible investors can receive a 90% state tax credit on the amount of their donation. The materials available for download in the right column explain the benefits of participation and how easy it can be to support Sewickley Academy by directing your Pennsylvania State tax dollars to the school’s financial aid program.
We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to you, one that is free from the hassles that plagued the old EITC application process. Please review the materials and reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you on behalf of the students here at Sewickley Academy, all of whom benefit from our investment in financial aid.
