Help transform the future of Palmyra Public Library and our community by participating in corporate giving through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. EITC benefits children in the community through educational programs including Palmyra Public Library’s preschool style Little Explorers Early Learning Classes. This program combines stories, games, crafts, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities to inspire a love of reading and foster a curiosity in the world that will help these young minds develop.

Your participation means that you will be rerouting your tax dollars to benefit education. Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 90% of your contribution for a two year commitment, and a 75% credit for a one year commitment. Your contribution also qualifies as a charitable contribution, which reduces the business’ net income for state and federal taxes, therefore saving the business money.
