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
Personal Income Tax of S Corporation Shareholders or Partnership Partners

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.
