SVF receives generous donation

The Seneca Valley Foundation received a gracious donation of $4,111 from Waste Management through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program grant.

A statewide program, EITC enables businesses to make donations to organizations they choose from a Commonwealth – approved list. EITC is a statewide initiative enacted by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development in 2001. EITC enables eligible businesses, like Waste Management, to apply credits against their tax liability for the tax year in which they make a contribution to support education in Pennsylvania.

Specifically, Waste Management’s EITC donation will benefit Science, Technology, and Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes at Seneca Valley.

If your business --or a business you know-- participates in EITC, please encourage them to dedicate EITC funds to the Seneca Valley Foundation. For more information or if you have questions, please call Ms. Kay Hoch, foundation secretary, at (724) 452-6040 ext. 1638 or by emailing her at
