Corporate Giving

Playing in a pile of leaves at PIC

Corporate Sponsors

PIC envisions a world where all young children, regardless of income or zip code, have access to high-quality learning experiences.

Corporate sponsorship is an incredible gift that helps more children and their families have greater access to high quality early childhood education and after school programming.

When you support tuition assistance at PIC you give children opportunities they might otherwise not have. You promote social and economic gains within and across generations of working families in Philadelphia. 

If your company is interested in supporting PIC through annual sponsorship or you know of a business that might be interested, please contact Development Manager Karen Stachelek at 215-222-5480 x241 or send an email to

Pennsylvania Pre-K Tax Credit Program (EITC)

Pennsylvania awards tax credits to operating businesses that support early learning organizations in order to help low-to-middle income families gain greater access to quality pre-K programs through scholarship assistance.

Instead of paying taxes directly to the Commonwealth, a business may instead support the PIC Pre-K Scholarship Program. An eligible business may receive a tax credit equal to 100% of the first $10,000 contributed to a Pre-K Scholarship Organization during the taxable year, and may receive a tax credit equal to 90% of any additional amount contributed, up to a maximum of $200,000.

Is my business eligible?
