ELCO Education Foundation
The ELCO Education Foundation will support educational excellence to enhance student achievement, to recognize exemplary staff, and to foster community support and involvement. In addition, this corporation is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes to benefit the Eastern Lebanon County School District located in Myerstown, Pennsylvania. To this end, the corporation shall at all times be operated exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as now enacted or hereafter amended, including, for such purposes, the receiving of contributions and the making of distributions to organizations that qualify.
This is largely made possible by donations from area businesses that donate to the Foundation as part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Companies who donate receive a credit against their state corporate taxes.
· 75 cents for every dollar
· 90 cents on the dollar if the donation is a two-year commitment
