Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit program provides scholarships to students to attend the school of their choice. Businesses can receive up to 90% tax credit each year when they make a two-year commitment on contributions to BMS!
“Through the EITC program, FOXPRO Inc. is fortunate to be able to direct a meaningful portion of our tax dollars to worthy local recipients. We are pleased to partner with Belleville Mennonite School as they continue to offer quality education based on superb spiritual and social themes.”

A Great Way for Businesses to Direct Their Tax Dollars
The EITC has accomplished what many in Pennsylvania have been advocating for years: to get the business community more involved in education. The EITC enables companies to support local non-profit charities, at a minimal cost, instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg. It’s that simple.
A Lifeboat for Kids, a Savings to Pennsylvania Taxpayers
EITC scholarships have provided thousands of lifeboats to families looking to escape failing public schools, as well as to families struggling to remain in non-public schools. Each time a child moves from a public to non-public school and each time a child is able to stay in a non-public school as a result of the EITC, both taxpayers and families win!
