What is BLOCS?
Through the EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit) program, you can provide scholarships to students in our area that enable them to attend Catholic Schools.
If you could donate $1000 to help provide a St. Gabriel parishioner with a catholic education and only really spend less than $100, would you?
¨ Businesses in Pennsylvania can donate to the BLOCS program, which provides need based scholarships to help pay Catholic School Tuition.
¨ These donation qualify for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit, which allows for a tax credit of up to 90% of the amount of your donation.
¨ Money donated to this program can be designated directly to a qualifying St. Gabriel Parishioner attending St. James Regional Catholic School.
¨ There is a simple, one page application to complete and submit.
¨ Deadlines for submitting your application for first time participants in the EITC program is July 2, 2012 for C corporations and July 9, 2012 for S corporations and partnerships.
Are you interested in helping to provide a student with a Catholic Education through the BLOCS program and earning a State Tax Credit? Do you have questions about the program? Do you want help completing or submitting the application?
