What is the PA E.I.T.C. Program?

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

The Library System of Lancaster County and various member libraries are recognized as Educational Improvement Organizations through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s EITC Program. We host a variety of youth literacy programs throughout the region that are approved to receive corporate EITC tax-credit contributions. A one-year commitment earns your company a tax credit equal to 75% of your contribution and a two-year commitment of the same contribution amount can earn you a 90% credit for two consecutive tax years.
