Educational Improvement Tax Credit/Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program: Direct your PA tax dollars to John W. Hallahan through these tax credit programs

The EITC and OSTC tax programs present an opportunity for companies and qualifying individuals to re-direct their PA state tax dollars to education and specifically to JW Hallahan in support of financial assistance and mission-related projects.


Your taxes … your choice! Make your PA state tax dollars work for John W. Hallahan through BLOCS (Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools) or the Henkels Foundation.

Companies and individuals can redirect their tax dollars to JW Hallahan through PA’s EITC/OSTC Tax Credit Program.

NOTE: John W. Hallahan does not appear on the EITC/OSTC recipient list, but does receive these funds when designated to us through BLOCS and the Henkels Foundation.

This is your chance to support Hallahan’s future as an excellent school in an easy 1-2-3 process.


Any C corporation or S corporation that pays the following Pennsylvania state taxes are eligible for the EITC program:

  • — Corporate Net Income Tax
  • — Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • — Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
  • — Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
  • — Insurance Premiums Tax
  • — Mutual Thrift Institution Tax
  • — Personal Income Tax of S corporation shareholders or Partnership Shareholders
  • — Qualifying individuals can participate in a Limited Liability Special Entity group


When approved, 75% of your contribution to Hallahan will post as a tax credit for your business. The tax credit increases to 90% if your company commits to making the same donation for two consecutive years. A business paying taxes in Pennsylvania can receive up to $300,000 in tax credits annually. Our school receives the EITC/OSTC contributions designated to JW Hallahan through 2 scholarship organizations: BLOCS (Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools) and the Henkels Foundation.

Furthermore, the 25% (or 10% for two year commitment) that is not included in the tax credit may be claimed as a charitable donation on your federal tax return.
