Bravo Foundation and donors who participate in Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program ensure that household economics is not a barrier to the right education for every child.
Since September 2003, Bravo Foundation and our donors have been providing scholarships for students across the Commonwealth to improve their pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade education.
Bravo Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the Internal Revenue Service and an approved Scholarship Organization with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) scholarships provide families the chance to choose the right school for their child’s pre K-12 education and businesses the opportunity to keep tax dollars in the community by supporting the education of local children.
Scholarships are awarded based on need as determined by a family’s household income. The maximum household income is $90,000 for a family with one child and an additional $15,000 for each additional child in the household. For example, a household with one dependent child must have an income at or under $90,000 for the prior year; a household with two dependent children must be under $105,000; and a household with three dependent children must be under $120,000.
For families with special education students, the maximum income levels are determined by multiplying the standard maximum income level for their family by 1.50 if the student is not enrolled in a special education school, or by 2.993 if the student is enrolled in a special education school. Special education schools must meet the guidelines set forth by the Commonwealth.
More than 5,400 companies have pledged nearly $510 million to programs across Pennsylvania, allowing students from nearly all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties and 500 school districts to benefit from this program.
