Education Improvement Tax Gifts

Make a charitable impact to support freedom in the heart of Philadelphia.

The Museum is pleased to be included on the list of Educational Improvement Organizations to which businesses may contribute as part of the Education Improvement Tax Credit Program from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (EITC). This tax credit enables corporations to contribute to the National Liberty Museum and receive up to 90% state tax credit to offset the contribution.

If your business is authorized to do business in Pennsylvania and pays any of the following taxes, then you can benefit from EITC:

  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Title Insurance Company Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premiums Tax
  • Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax

Even if your company does not pay income tax, many “C” and “S” corporations still pay the Capital Stock Tax. The application process couldn’t be simpler. Learn more and download complete EITC Guidelines, including an application.
