Support The Hill

Pennsylvania's Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program

Benefit your business and provide a Hill School education to a deserving Pennsylvania student.

The Pennsylvania Tax Credit Programs (EITC/OSTC) gives eligible businesses and individuals the ability to redirect their taxes to be turned into scholarships for low- and mid-income students to attend the school of their choice.

As a Pennsylvania taxpayer, EITC is a great way for you to receive a 90% state tax credit and have that money go directly to The Hill School to benefit a Hill student from Pennsylvania.


Your small business can contribute and benefit from the tax credits if your company operated in Pennsylvania and expects to pay any of these taxes:

  • PA Corporate Net Tax
  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • Bank and Trust Company Tax
  • Title Insurance Tax
  • Insurance Premiums Tax or Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
  • Personal Income Tax: S corporations, partnerships and other “pass through” businesses may choose the “pass through” option where the tax credit is applied to shareholders, members, partners, or the business owner.

The Hill has partnered with Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund, a special purpose entity (SPE) to facilitate the School’s EITC program.

Megan and I gladly support The Hill School through the EITC program. Through our multi-year commitment, the EITC program enables us to financially support the School’s programs while receiving the tax credit benefits. Frankly, this is one of the easiest decisions we’ve made and a great way to support Hill. We highly encourage families to explore the benefits of participating in the program.Megan and Rick Lewis P’20 ’22 ’26
