tHANK YOU!

We are humbled by all the blessings God has bestowed upon us here at St. Ann School. We thank our parish, alumni, and school families for their continued support and leadership. It is inspiring to know that so many members of the St. Ann community remain dedicated to supporting our mission of academic excellence taught by dedicated teachers that are committed to understanding the needs and talents of each individual and focus on developing the whole child intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Annual gifts open doors to countless opportunities for St. Ann students. A gift to the St. Ann Fund addresses our greatest needs and impacts our school in ways you may never have imagined. The Annual Fund provides the necessary resources to enhance the educational experience for our students through such means as updated academic materials, new innovative technology, and professional development opportunities for our teachers, as well as future improvements to our facility.   Additionally, our fund supports the necessary scholarships to assist the school in fulfilling its commitment to meeting families’ demonstrated financial need.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies and corporate foundations match gifts to non-profit institutions such as St. Ann School. Also, matching gifts are a great way to increase support of St. Ann School without additional out-of-pocket expense. Matching gifts are a very important source of support. You can double or even triple the value of your donation and enhance your total gift, by simply notifying your employer of your gift to St. Ann School. You may be eligible to submit matching gift claims from both your own and your spouse's employer for the same gift. Contact the human resources office at your employer, your spouse's employer, or even your former employer, if you are retired, to inquire about their matching gift program.

 

 
 

Educational Improvment Tax Credit Program (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC)

Are you a business owner? Does your business pay PA State Taxes? Would you prefer to direct those tax dollars to St. Ann School to provide student scholarships for families that could not otherwise afford a Catholic education for their children? Then EITC/OSTC is for you!

Who can participate? Corporations (C and Sub S), Partnerships, LLC's - any business entity except sole proprietorship can participate. Instead of paying taxes to the state, your business makes a contribution through EITC/OSTC, and receives a 90% tax credit (for a two year commitment). Your contribution can also be deducted from your Federal and state taxes.

Simply put – a corporation, partnership, etc can make a donation of $10,000 – receive a $9,000 direct state tax credit – and can also deduct the $10,000 as a contribution on their Federal return. If in a 35% tax bracket - the net cost for a $10,000 contribution to the school would be $650.

Participation in this state program makes a significant impact on St. Ann School. For further information please contact Lisa Schultz at lschultz@stann-emmaus.org.
