Here is encouraging school choice news from the Diocese of Scranton about a recent contribution to the Educational Improvement Tax Credit and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Programs –
PNC Bank recently contributed $40,000 to Catholic education to the Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. The program provides need-based tuition assistance to students attending Diocesan schools. PNC Bank also presented the Diocesan Scholarship Foundation with a $20,000 contribution through Pennsylvania’s new Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) program, which provides scholarship assistance to eligible families who reside within the boundary of an under-performing school, as determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Since 2002, PNC Bank has generously contributed over $740,000 to Catholic education in the Diocese of Scranton.
