Administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program (EITC) provides the opportunity for qualified businesses to make charitable contributions to educational organizations, in lieu state tax payments. The Wildcat Foundation is approved as a K-12 Educational Improvement Organization and as such, may accept your EITC contribution. Learn more about this valuable program in this EITC Program Information Guide.
