Educational Improvement Tax Credit

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program allows Pennsylvania-based businesses to receive generous tax credits by contributing to qualified educational organizations. As a recipient of EITC funds, Stroud Water Research Center makes its school programs, field trips, and professional development workshops available at no or reduced cost to public school districts.

The Stroud Center offers a variety of programs and workshops aimed at helping students and teachers understand many of the science concepts in their schools’ curricula by direct, concrete and academic exposure to their local streams and regional watersheds. These programs are rooted in the most up-to-date research and are tied directly to Pennsylvania’s Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology and Science and Technology.

How EITC Works

  • Businesses apply for the program on  Pennsylvania’s EITC website.
  • Enrolled businesses designate the Stroud Center as an EITC recipient by contacting Kristine Lisi, Director of Development, or Steve Kerlin, Director of Education.
  • The Stroud Center provides innovative programs at no or reduced cost to public school districts.

We are grateful to the following businesses for providing 2017-2018 EITC funds to support program scholarships!
