Educational Improvement Tax Credit

Did you know that the National Aviary provided formal education classes to over 20,000 children last year? 

Each year, children from schools around the region attend the National Aviary’s environmental education programs.

If your business has tax-liability in the state of Pennsylvania, we can partner through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. If EITC is new to you, learn more on the PA EITC website.

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

The National Aviary receives no federal funding and very little funding from the state. We rely on earned program revenue and on the generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals who believe in our mission and STEM-focused education efforts. 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.
