Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is delighted to acknowledge the receipt of a $7,000 donation from the First National Bank of Pennsylvania in support of the Education Improvement Tax Credit Program (“EITC”) and their proud commitment and support of the university.

Generous contributions such as these are exclusively directed towards strengthening our EITC-approved initiatives. These approved programs encompass College in the High School, Digital Media Exploration, Nanobiotechnology Explorations, and our active participation in the Capital Area Science and Engineering Fair. Each year, Harrisburg University positively impacts the lives of over 1,000 Pennsylvania students, thanks in part to the crucial support provided by the EITC program.

Duane Maun, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Financial Officer of Harrisburg University, emphasized the significance of EITC donations, stating, “When organizations use their EITC dollars to support organizations like Harrisburg University, they provide students across Pennsylvania with a head-start on college through the programs we’re able to provide. We are so appreciative of the backing of our EITC donors and pleased to provide the programs they fund.”

How Your Business Can Participate in the EITC Program

The EITC program extends a 75 percent tax credit to qualifying companies and individuals for donations to a nonprofit scholarship (SO) or educational improvement organization (EIO). This credit increases to 90 percent if a company commits to making identical donations for two consecutive years. Participating businesses and individuals not only benefit from tax advantages but also contribute to innovative educational programs while enhancing their positive public relations through charitable work.

Businesses and individuals interested in supporting HU via the EITC program are encouraged to contact:
