Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

Did you know that the National Aviary provided education programs to approximately 23,000 students last year?

Each year, the National Aviary engages thousands of children from schools around the region through our innovative environmental education programs.

If your business has tax liability in the state of Pennsylvania, we can partner with you through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) to provide tax credits. If EITC is new to you, learn more on the PA Department of Community and Economic Development’s EITC website.

All of the National Aviary’s classes meet Pennsylvania Department of Education academic standards for science/technology and environment/ecology. As a result, we have been officially designated as an Educational Improvement Organization (EIO). We are eligible for a tax-reducing donation from your company if you participate in the EITC program.

Consider the impact to your business tax liability:

The National Aviary receives no federal funding. We rely on earned program revenue and the generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals who believe in our mission to inspire respect for nature through an appreciation of birds. Our education programs provide opportunities for students to understand important conservation and environmental concepts through engaging, STEM-focused studies. For these reasons, if your company benefits from the EITC program, we ask you to consider making the National Aviary a recipient of your corporate philanthropy.

Please mail your PA EITC tax-credit donation to:
