Keystone College recently received a $15,000 contribution from Fidelity Bank as part of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.
Administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the EITC program enables eligible businesses to receive tax credits by contributing to educational institutions or other similar scholarship organizations.
Keystone will use the funding to develop and conduct summer school initiatives for local students focusing on a variety of innovative STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) programs.
“We are very grateful to Fidelity Bank for making this contribution to Keystone College through the Pennsylvania EITC program By developing and introducing innovative summer STEAM programs, Keystone will continue our long tradition of serving the local community through high-quality, year-round educational programming.”
-Keystone College President Tracy L. Brundage
