BBBS of Berks renewed EITC

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County, PA (BBBS of Berks) is happy to announce that the agency has been renewed as an EITC-eligible organization — an EIO (Education Improvement Organization) through the PA Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. BBBS of Berks has been an EITC-eligible agency since 2007. All funds received help to pay for our school-based mentoring programs in two Berks County school districts.

The program allows EITC-approved businesses to contribute a large portion of certain taxes to EITC-eligible agencies, including but not limited to:

 Corporate Net Income Tax

 Capital Stock Franchise Tax

 Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax

Contact Executive Director Jim Smith if you want more information on the state’s EITC program and how your company can help improve the lives of Berks County youth for the better, forever.
