Donor-advised Fund

A donor-advised fund allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support Easterseals of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Requests can be made to recommend grants to us directly from your donor-advised fund.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) provides Pennsylvania tax credits to offset the tax of a business (or business owner) that makes a qualified charitable contribution benefiting Easterseals of Southeastern Pennsylvania. EITC allows businesses to receive a 75%-90% credit on their state income tax for the contributions they make to Easterseals through this program. The tax credit is taken in the year the contribution is made. Instead of sending dollars outside of our community as taxes, businesses can keep them local to benefit our Friendship Academy Inclusive Preschool. Additional information is available online at www.dced.pa.gov (type EITC in the search box) or by calling the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) at 717-787-7120.  If you have any questions about the EITC Program, please contact Liz Meckes at 484-234-8007 or lmeckes@easterseals-sepa.org

In-Kind Gifts

In-kind gifts that directly benefit the mission of Easterseals are greatly appreciated! In-kind gifts are a type of charitable giving where a donor provides a needed item or service. We welcome many types of in-kind donations like gift cards and classroom supplies. Certain in-kind gifts have to be approved by the Director of Development, the CEO, or the Board of Directors. For more information contact Liz Meckes at lmeckes@easterseals-sepa.org

Easterseals Innovation Fund

Easterseals Innovation Fund is designed to help inspire creative thinking among our staff and to fund projects that fall outside our operating budget. It will provide a way for Easterseals employees to apply for funding for new therapeutic approaches, unbudgeted learning and training opportunities, innovative strategies for classroom learning and cutting-edge equipment through a competitive grant process managed by an Advisory Committee appointed by members of the Easterseals Board of Directors.
