Corporate Giving: EITC and OSTC

Help transform the future for Harrisburg Academy students by participating in corporate giving through the Commonwealth’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) or Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs.  Both programs provide Academy students financial aid; OSTC funds specifically benefit students from underperforming school districts in the greater Harrisburg area. 

By participating, your business can directly impact education by designating business tax credits to Harrisburg Academy.  Eligible businesses can receive a tax credit equal to 75 percent of your contribution and a company that commits to the program for two consecutive years, the credit is 90 percent of your contribution.

Through corporate support, scholarships have been awarded to students who otherwise may not have been able to afford an Academy education.  The Academy strives to provide equal access to all academically talented students.  Thank you to the 2019-20 EITC and OSTC donors for sharing the gift of an outstanding liberal arts education with the greater Harrisburg community!



  • $3.2 million has been donated to the financial aid program at the Academy since the inception of the programs
  • 225 grants have been awarded to talented students who could not have afforded an Academy education without this funding
  • 15 students, on average, receive an EITC/OSTC award each academic year
  • 55 businesses have partnered with Harrisburg Academy since the program’s inception in 2001
  • $9,500 average annual award per scholarship recipient
  • The number of students applying for financial aid each year far exceeds our budget and for that reason alone, corporate support of the Academy is essential so we can provide unmatched educational opportunities for all students
