The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh thanks the more than many companies, corporate sponsors, fund programs and initiatives who, through their monetary donations, supported programs and activities throughout our Association. For more information about becoming a corporate sponsor, and for sponsorship opportunities, please look at the sponsorship packets linked below:
EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT TAX CREDIT (EITC)
In 2001, Pennsylvania Act 4 established the EITC program. Act 4 authorizes the award of tax credits to businesses that make contributions to scholarship organizations. You may receive a tax credit equivalent to 90% of your gift if your business commits to two-consecutive years of donations. If your business gives for one year, your business may receive a tax credit of 75% of your gift. Your company can give up to $200,000.
Our EITC programs that you can make contributions are:
- YMCA Lighthouse Project
- Y Creator Space
- Environmental Education programs
YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh is eligible for designations through the United Way Campaign. If your company holds an annual United Way drive, consider designating your contribution to support the Y’s work in the community. To direct your gift to the area of greatest need, designate your gift to the association code #113, or look up individual codes for branches and camps.
Many corporations match employee gifts as part of their philanthropic efforts. Please inquire with your employer about its matching gift programs to make your contribution go even further to help make a difference in our community.
GIVE YOUR TIME
Volunteering at the Y is a fun and rewarding way to support your neighbors, strengthen your community, and connect with amazing people.
