Stroud Water Research Center gratefully acknowledges Meridian Bank’s recent gift through the Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credits (EITC) program. The EITC program allows Pennsylvania-based businesses to receive generous tax credits by contributing to qualified educational organizations.

As a recipient of EITC funds, the Stroud Center makes its school programs, field trips, and professional development workshops available at no or reduced cost to public school districts whose budgets might not otherwise be able to offer the innovative educational programs in support of their regular curricula.

Meridian Bank is an independent local bank serving the needs of businesses and individuals on the Main Line and throughout Chester County. They are committed to serving our local community and we are so grateful for their support of our education programs through EITC funding.
