Other Ways to Give
Pennsylvania Tax Credit Programs
Pennsylvania has established the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) scholarship programs. This is an incredible opportunity for Venango Region Catholic School supporters to provide direct scholarship aid to VRCS students. Many businesses operating in Pennsylvania are eligible to apply for tax credits based on their contributions to qualified scholarship organizations. Shareholders of S Corporations and partners in general and limited partnerships have the added advantage of being able to pass the tax credits through their businesses to their Personal Income Tax liability.
Entities authorized to do business in Pennsylvania and subject to any of the following taxes are eligible to apply for EITC/OSTC tax credits.
- Corporate Net Income Tax
- Capital Stock Franchise Tax
- Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
- Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
- Insurance Premiums Tax
- Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
For more information about the EITC/OSTC tax credits, please refer to the information prepared by the REACH Foundation. To help arrange an application for EITC/OSTC tax credits to support Venango Region Catholic School, please contact us.
Venango Region Catholic School has events throughout the year to welcome partners and community members to celebrate what VRCS has to offer. The Roast Beef Dinner in November, the Lenten Fish Fries and the VC golf outing in July are all ways to mingle with other VRCS supporters and give to the school. The calendar available on the school website will keep you informed of these and other special events at Venango Region Catholic School.
In addition to regular operating expenses, Venango Region Catholic School must invest in its buildings, grounds and durable goods to continue fulfilling its mission. Your capital gift is a gift restricted by the donor for specific repairs and upgrades to the school facilities and equipment. Capital gifts provide a valuable complement to the school by providing for exceptional investments.
A memorial gift in memory of loved and admired people who have gone before us is an outstanding way to remember the beloved dead and to help Venango Region Catholic School. Your memorial gift can be an unrestricted gift or a restricted capital gift. To make a memorial gift, please contact us.
