Support Shalom

Shalom Christian Academy has established a close Christian educational community that is dedicated to developing each student for a life of consequence in the world for the Kingdom of God. Historically our tuition allows many parents to choose Christian education because of two basic reasons – faculty are committed to this educational mission by working for salaries that are less than the average public school salary and our community gives in many ways to bridge the financial challenge.

 

Giving to Shalom Christian Academy – whether the amount is small or large – shows your confidence in our mission and helps us achieve our goal to further our purpose of providing a high-quality Christian education. Every gift is appreciated and welcomed.

Donations

 

 

EITC

  • Are you a business owner? The state-operated  Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program awards tax credits to eligible businesses that make a contribution to an approved scholarship program (such as Shalom Christian Academy). These funds are then distributed in the form of scholarships to income-qualifying students.
  • How much tax credit may my business receive through a tax credit contribution? The credit is 75 percent against taxed owed if the contribution is made in a single year. If a company provides a two-year commitment of equal funding, the credit rises to 90 percent. Existing charitable deductions may also apply.
  • How do I know if my business is eligible? Any business authorized to do business in the Commonwealth of PA and pays any of the following taxes: personal income tax of S-corp shareholders or partnership partners, corporate net income tax, capital stock/foreign franchise tax, bank shares tax, title insurance & trust company shares tax, insurance premiums tax, mutual thrift tax, malt beverage tax, retaliatory fees under section 212 of the insurance company law of 1912.
