Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program
Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation
The Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation welcomes corporate support of our “Building Pride/Building Character” program made possible by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.
In the fall of 2012, eleven businesses contributed a total of $68,000 to the “Building Pride/Building Character” program. These contributions are making it possible for elementary students from 12 Pittsburgh Public Schools to participate in the “Building Pride/Building Character” program January through June 2013.

Through tours, art activities, exhibits, and in-school programs created for the “Building Pride/Building Character” program, students discover a lot about their school, neighborhood, and city—and a lot about themselves—and fulfill academic standards in the process. Your support after July 1, 2013 will allow Landmarks to continue this program in the fall of 2013 and through June 2014.
To support the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation’s “Building Pride/Building Character” program, please visit EITC’s Web site and complete the application (Appendix I EIO) found in the “EITC Business Guidelines”. Eligible businesses are those authorized to do business in Pennsylvania who are subject to one or more of the following taxes: Corporate Net Income Tax, Capital Stock Franchise Tax, Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax, Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax, Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax, Insurance Premiums Tax, or Mutual Thrift Institution Tax. Businesses may receive tax credits equal to 75% of their contribution for only one year or 90% of their contribution if the business agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years. The limit per business is $200,000 per taxable year.
