Educational Improvement Tax Credit

What is the EITC program?

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program allows Pennsylvania businesses to earn tax credits, which can reduce their tax bill dollar-for-dollar, for contributions made to an approved Scholarship Organization (SO), Educational Improvement Organization (EIO), and/or a Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization (PKSO). 

Best of the Batch Foundation is an approved Scholarship Organization and Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization.

Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit

What is the OSTC program?

The OSTC Program (previously known as the EITC 2.0 Program) provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to an Opportunity Scholarship Organization.  Business contributions are then used to provide tuition assistance in the form of scholarships for students that currently live within the boundaries of low-achieving schools.

Best of the Batch Foundation is an approved Scholarship Organization and Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization.
