The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has recently enacted legislation that allows Pennsylvania residents to redirect their state income tax dollars to local qualified educational institutions like The Silver Academy and the Brenner Family Early Learning Center. This program, called the Educational Investment Tax Credit (EITC), allows participants to make a donation to The Silver Academy and the Early Learning Center in lieu of paying their state taxes!
EITC has greatly expanded in the past few years and now is the time for the Harrisburg community to get on board. In that spirit, anyone and everyone is invited to attend one of our EITC information sessions. Our first sessions will be held at the Silver Academy in the Wolfson, Sunday, February 17th at 11:00 AM with a repeat session to be held on the same day, in the same room at 4:00 PM. We will also host an information session in the same room on President’s Day, Monday, February 18th at 6:00 PM for those that prefer evenings, and another session at the Silver Academy also in the Wolfson on Thursday morning, February 21st at 7:30 AM for those that prefer mornings.
At the session, we hope to educate people about the simple ways to get involved. We have streamlined the process and it takes no more than ten minutes to sign up. Come, bring your friends, your family members, and anyone else you can think of. The more people who attend, the more word of this phenomenal program will spread.
