Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program

Companies can support Baldwin’s students by directing money it would pay to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in taxes to Baldwin. The state government allocates tax credits for education programs each year, which are then distributed to eligible businesses on a first-come, first-served basis until the credits run out.

Participation is easy! The business you own or work for can apply by filling out a simple application online. Once approved by the state, your company simply makes a donation to Baldwin and forwards the receipt to the state for tax credits to be applied.

Who is eligible? Pennsylvania businesses subject to one or more of the following taxes:

  • Corporate Net Income Tax

  • Insurance Premiums Tax

  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax

  • Mutual Thrift Institution Tax

  • Malt Beverage Tax 

  • Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax

  • Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax

  • Retaliatory Fees under section 212 of the Insurance Company Law of 1921

Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 75% of their contribution to Baldwin. This credit is increased to 90% if the business commits to give the same amount for two consecutive years.

Planned Giving

Are you aware that planned gifts provide unique ways to support Baldwin and at the same time support you and your loved ones?

Many potential donors assume the only way they can support Baldwin is by making an outright gift; but in fact, with careful and thoughtful planning you can:

  • Make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.

  • Make a gift using securities and realize tax savings while potentially creating a stream of income for life.

  • Donate your home; continue to reside there as long as you wish; and get a tax break, all at the same time.
