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! 

Are you a business decision maker? 

Would you rather pay taxes or use the same money to provide scholarships for BMS students?

Have you heard?  

Individuals may now participate in the Pennsylvania Tax Credit Programs.

How?  Individuals with a tax liability can now join a Special Purpose Entity (SPE) to take full advantage of the PA EITC programs. These SPE’s or Pass-Through entities are created as a vehicle for directing EITC/OSTC funds to families of your school. As part of the Children’s Tuition Fund of PA Scholarship Partners, Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund, or Faith Builders, individuals that wish to contribute through the EITC may designate a portion of their tax liability to a non-profit school of their choice for scholarships.

Any individual that owns or is employed by a PA business may participate. Minimum Contribution is $1,000.

How does this program benefit students at BMS?

Donations to an approved scholarship organization become available to provide scholarship assistance to qualified Pennsylvania students in PreK - Grade 12. Individuals and businesses can designate that your donation be used as scholarship assistance for qualified students at Belleville Mennonite School. The contribution will be combined with other EITC donations to serve as many families as possible each year.

Participating individuals may:
Receive the Credit for their individual PA Taxes
90% Tax Credit for a 2-Year Commitment
Participate in the ongoing success of your school
Recruit others to participate

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.

“As a Christian and a conservative, I find it increasingly difficult to raise my two sons with the same values in today's society. Belleville Mennonite School helps instill Christian values into my sons' lives, which I could not do alone. Thank you to BMS and their EITC Business Partners for assisting us in our journey.”   

-Melvin Swab, parent

“A part of the MCS Bank mission is to invest our resources in ways that positively impact our community.  One way we fulfill this mission is by supporting local families and their children who seek a Christian-based education at Belleville Mennonite School.  The EITC program enables us to provide a larger contribution to the school’s scholarship fund than would otherwise be possible.”

- Mr. Terry Foster, Executive Vice President/CEO

“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.”
