Supporting Financial Aid
Make a gift of financial aid for talented, qualified students to attend Penn Charter and earn tax credits on your Pennsylvania state tax liability. It's easy and it only costs a dime to give a dollar.
The Penn Charter tax-credit program supports nearly 200 Penn Charter students annually. Every dollar raised is directed to financial aid, helping Penn Charter attract, maintain and grow the number of talented, qualified students with demonstrated financial need, and students from eligible neighborhoods with low-achieving public schools across the region. Your commitment to the tax-credit program ensures an excellent educational experience for all Penn Charter students.
