PA Tax Credit Program (SPE, EITC, OSTC)

Did you know that you can redirect your state tax dollars to fund scholarships at Marian Catholic High School? 

Deadline extended through December 31, 2020. Don’t delay, sign up today!


The Special Purpose Entity (SPE), Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs provide tax credits to eligible individuals and business contributing to the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholarship Foundation (EPSF). 

The EPSF awards nearly 1,500 scholarships to students attending elementary and secondary schools, special learning centers, and

pre-kindergarten programs within the Diocese of Allentown during the school year.


You can keep Pennsylvania state taxes in your community by selecting Marian Catholic as the designated recipient. If you own a business or are a Pennsylvania tax payer, you can help build a brighter future for deserving students at Marian Catholic High School

by participating in this amazing program. Individual or business contributions are used to provide tuition assistance in the form of scholarships. EPSF provides financial assistance to families at Marian Catholic High School to help cover the cost of tuition. 

Your support of Marian through the Pennsylvania State Tax Credit Program benefits qualified families. We are grateful for your support!



If you pay a minimum of $5,000 in PA state income tax, you can turn that into a $5,000 scholarship to benefit students at
Marian Catholic High School.
This is a state program (not federal), so individuals will benefit only if they pay PA state income taxes.
Please consult with your tax advisor. Eligibility to participate is limited.


Please contact our Dir. of Advancement, Kristine Evina for more information at
