PA Tax Credit

Participation in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and the Opportunity for Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs, administered by the state of Pennsylvania, provides a significant tax credit to eligible individuals and businesses to allocate a portion of their tax dollars to The Agnes Irwin School. 

The contributions from the generous donors and entities have helped provide scholarship assistance to 38 Agnes Irwin students this year and raised $1.6 Million in support of scholarships for highly-qualified and talented Agnes Irwin girls.

The Agnes Irwin School is grateful to our 2022-2023 supporters.

Your Impact

In recent years, Agnes Irwin girls benefited from nearly $1.4M in tax credit dollars — that is less than half of the total need that could be met through the programs.

Ways to participate



Renewing businesses and those in the middle of a two-year commitment must apply with the state by May 15; new business applicants must apply by July 1. Click the appropriate button below for complete information regarding business eligibility and the application process.


The Agnes Irwin School is expanding opportunities for individuals to support the school through the PA Tax Credit programs during the 2024-2025 school year. Individuals may participate through a Special Purpose Entity (SPE) established on behalf of The Agnes Irwin School. It is easy to do so and requires only one piece of paperwork facilitated through the Advancement Team. If you are interested in participating in the EITC program by becoming a member of our SPE, please contact Emily Rauch to get started.
