EITC

HSP is an approved Educational Improvement Organization through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), which allows participating corporations to make designated contributions that are eligible for tax credit.

A contribution to HSP through EITC can receive up to 90% of the gift total as a tax credit: your $15,000 gift could result in a credit as high as $13,500. The contribution may also be deducted for federal tax purposes.

Contributions received through EITC provide valuable support to HSP’s in-demand education programs. Your contribution would support HEAD for the Future, our K-12 education program, which is built on the belief that teaching with primary source archival material creates an effective, tangible, and connective experience
