EITC: PA Tax Credits Support Education

Individuals and Businesses Can Unleash the Power of Learning

Support the Museum through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program which allows individuals and businesses to redirect their state tax dollars to the educational charity of their choice.

By participating in this program, donors receive a tax credit of 90% of their donation amount, and these dollars support programs and initiatives that make a real difference in the lives of children living in Pennsylvania.

As an accredited Educational Enrichment Organization (EIO), every dollar The Weitzman raises through this program offers students from low-income schools in our region creative educational programs that bolster civic engagement, help students become “history detectives” and make connections between the stories they learn and their own lives.

Your state tax dollars will support our vital educational programming
