Pennsylvania's Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) is ideal for business owners and individual tax payers seeking a cost-effective partnership that has an immediate impact.

Mutually beneficial for both donor and recipient, EITC provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to one of the following programs: a scholarship organization, an educational improvement organization, and a pre-kindergarten scholarship organization (PKSO), such as KenCrest. Participation is free, and YOU determine what charity gets your tax dollars.

Contributions made to KenCrest through this program go directly to fund tuition assistance and scholarships for families who cannot afford the cost of a high-quality early learning center in their community and would like to attend one of our seven Philadelphia-based Early Learning Centers.

Individuals and retirees are also eligible to take advantage of this tax credit vehicle through a Special Purpose Entity (SPE).

To learn more about the EITC or SPE program at KenCrest, please get in touch with Dawn Warden, Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations, at 610-825-9360 ext. 1123 or

For more than 25 years, KenCrest has been a proponent and champion of employment for people with disabilities in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region.
