A gift to Shipley can provide your company with a substantial Tax Credit through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) Program.

EITC and OSTC scholarship funds, enable the School to assist deserving and talented students from Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties who otherwise would not be able to afford a Shipley education.

By making a contribution to Shipley’s scholarship fund, your company can save in Pennsylvania tax as much as 90% of the value of the gift. Please take a few moments to review this opportunity with your company’s tax advisor. Your support of Shipley through the EITC and/or OSTC Programs will help the School make its educational experience available to the most capable students regardless of their financial circumstances.

"It is with great pleasure that I support Shipley through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. Not only does it make sense for INTECH from a business standpoint, but, more importantly, our participation is helping to open doors for talented students who are eager to take advantage of a Shipley education. It is such a worthwhile program; I can’t think of a reason why we wouldn’t want to participate!"
~William Schwartz, parent of Ali ’10 and Drew ’11, and Co-Owner of INTECH Construction
