Corporate Giving & Sponsorship
Since 1980, PCCY has taken a stand on behalf of our region’s children by using one hand to protect our children and using the other to apply pressure on lawmakers. As an independent, non-partisan organization we do not receive any government money. To continue our work to provide better lives and life chances for our region’s children, we depend on donations from foundations, corporations and individuals to meet our budget each year. To learn more information on corporate sponsorship, please contact PCCY’s Development Director ML Wernecke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-563-5848 x20.

Educational Improvement Tax Credits
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania offers Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC) to businesses that make donations to approved educational improvement organizations. Under EITC, businesses that donate to qualifying non-profits can receive a 75 to 90% credit to offset state tax liabilities. PCCY is approved by the state to receive EITC funds for its Picasso Project, an innovative arts education initiative for at-risk students in the Philadelphia public schools that have had their arts and music programs decimated due to budget cuts. In 2014, 3,500 students attending 14 charter and traditional public schools engaged in art, music, dance and theater through the Picasso Project. With EITC funding, PCCY’s goal is to at least double the number Picasso Project schools and students. For more information about the EITC, contact PCCY’s Development Director, ML Wernecke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
