Bridging education opportunities through public private partnerships

At Bridge Educational Foundation,

we work hard to make sure Pennsylvania children get the best education possible. We realize education is vital to the future of our youth. With support from our donors and interested local citizens, Bridge Educational Foundation is boosting the educational achievement opportunities for children and families that would otherwise not be available to them.

Bridge raises funds through Pennsylvania's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program and Pennsylvania’s Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) Program. These landmark educational tax credit Programs afford businesses the chance to enrich the lives of Pennsylvania children by improving the quality of their education and better preparing them for a future in the workplace.

The EITC and OSTC Programs are simple: businesses receive tax credits for donations made to Commonwealth-approved, non-profit scholarship organizations, like Bridge, and families in need are able to choose the best education for their children.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Bridge has connected corporate partners with thousands of families who need their help. Our goal is to continue to serve as the bridge between good corporate citizens and families in need.
