Where would you rather send your taxes - to Harrisburg or to Upland?
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provides generous tax credits to eligible businesses that give financial aid gifts to schools, including Upland Country Day School.
Almost $60 million is available on a first-come, first-served basis for contributions to scholarship organizations like Upland. In fact, to date, Pennsylvania businesses have donated over $1,542,000 (ranging in size from $2,500 - $100,000) to our financial aid program, making an Upland education affordable for scores of eligible families.
Tax credits start at 75% of the donation amount for a one year contribution, increase to 90% for a two-year contribution, and can be applied to as much as a $300,000 contribution each year. (Residual tax benefits can reduce the actual cost of the donation to almost nothing.) Re-Applications for tax credits for program fiscal year 2018-2019 (July 1 - June 30) will be accepted beginning May 14, 2018; first-time applications will be accepted on July 2, 2018.
