Without any cost to your organization, you can support BMC’s mission to deliver engaging, hands-on programming that helps Erie students who are living at or below the poverty line, and are the most likely not to graduate and suffer life-long consequences. Please help support and continue the important work of the Bayfront Maritime Center at no cost to you.
If you pay any of the following state taxes you qualify:
• Bank & Trust Company Shares Tax
• Capital Stock Franchise Tax
• Corporate Net Income Tax
• Insurance Premiums Tax
• Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
• Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
Through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) your business can donate 90% of this tax burden for 2 years, or 75% for 1 year. BMC has been approved for 2014/2015 EITC contributions, and all you have to do is fill out the simple, one-page form to see if you qualify. Click here to download the EITC application.
With your support, BMC could also continue to develop innovative opportunities, such as our new Veterans at EASE program, which is designed to help returning veterans who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) re-adjust to civilian life by providing sailing opportunities.
If you have any questions about the EITC program, please feel free to email Rich Eisenberg, or call (814) 456-4077. Thank you for considering becoming a part of this positive change for Erie.
