PA Tax Credit Program

“PARTICIPATING IN THE PA TAX CREDIT PROGRAM IS A GREAT AND SIMPLE WAY TO MAKE A DIRECT IMPACT ON ARCHBISHOP CARROLL STUDENTS. IT IS EASY TO ENROLL AND THE PROGRAM ALLOWS ME TO TELL THE COMMONWEALTH WHERE I WANT MY TAX DOLLARS TO GO AND WHERE I KNOW 100% OF MY CONTRIBUTION WILL BE USED TO SUPPORT THE TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AT CARROLL.”

– JOSEPH KEEFER ’76

 

 

The Pennsylvania Educational Tax Credit Program allows businesses and individuals to allocate their PA tax dollars to provide tuition assistance to qualified Carroll students. Essentially, you can turn your taxes into scholarships and receive a 90% tax credit against your PA state income liability.

 

Available to companies that are authorized to do business in PA and individuals who pay $1,000 or more in PA state tax, these scholarship opportunities open the door for many families and ensure access to qualified students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend. Participation in this program offers you an incomparable opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young men and women and support the overall excellence of the Catholic education we provide to our students at Archbishop Carroll.

BUSINESS PARTICIPATION

Any business that pays PA taxes is eligible to participate in the program. The tax credit program enables the business you own or work for to redirect state tax dollars to Carroll. The Archbishop Carroll Fund for Catholic Education (ACFCE) is an independent 501(c) (3) established in 2006 to support Archbishop Carroll students. In 2013, it was expanded to serve as an official Scholarship Organization approved by the Commonwealth to receive PA tax credit donations from businesses and corporations.

This program is nearly too good to be true and a great opportunity to support Carroll at a significantly lower cost than making any other type of cash charitable contribution. By participating in the PA tax credit program you will receive a 90% PA tax credit while helping make an Archbishop Carroll education possible for the many students who rely on financial aid!
