Annual Giving Campaign

Designate your gift to a special area of interest or make a gift that will be used to address the greatest needs of the school for the current fiscal year. Either way, you will be supporting an institution known for creating strength, leadership and a brighter future for all.

What is the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program?
The EITC Program enables companies to support nonprofit schools at minimal cost. Instead of sending tax dollars to Harrisburg, companies can reallocate them to support Wyoming Seminary’s financial aid program.
Who may make EITC gifts?
You might be surprised. Businesses ranging from neighborhood pharmacies, to mid-sized companies, to large corporations all are eligible. This includes the following type of businesses:
• C-Corporations (taxed at the corporate level)
• Sole Proprietors
• Limited Liability Companies (LLC’s)
• Subchapter S corporations and other businesses that pay their State business taxes under the personal income tax on PA business income
How much of a business’ tax liability can be donated to Wyoming Seminary through EITC
Businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 75% of a contribution up to $750,000 per year. The credit increases to 90% if the business agrees to provide the same amount for two years.
