EITC and OSTC


At Trinity High School, we value the generosity of corporate partners who support students through the Pennsylvania Educational Tax Credit (EITC) and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs, which provide need-based financial aid scholarships for qualifying students. These programs are one of the most effective means of supporting equal access to academic excellence and during the 2016-17 academic year Trinity received over $275,000, benefiting 112 students.

Both programs, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, provide financial aid and OSTC funds specifically benefit students from underperforming school districts in the greater Harrisburg area.

By participating, your business can directly impact a Trinity education by designating business tax credits to our school through the Neumann Scholarship Foundation, Bridge Educational Foundation, and Bravo Educational Foundation. Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 75% of your contribution and up to 90% if your company commits to the program for two consecutive years.

All business applications for the EITC and OSTC programs are submitted online. Businesses must register first in order to apply.
