Donating to MCA
There are many students who are part of our community who want this opportunity to experience a Christian education but cannot afford it. We are so thankful for scholarship opportunities that change lives and provide a place for students in a Christian environment.
Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)
Mountaintop Christian Academy (MCA) works with a non-profit charity, Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund (CPSF), that serves as a scholarship fund for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). EITC is a program offered by the state of Pennsylvania which allows taxpayers to donate their taxes to non-profit private schools in return for tax credits. 100% of your donation will come to our school and will go towards student scholarships.
Determine your PA tax liability. We recommend referring to your previous year's tax filing (Form PA-40 Line 12) or consulting an accountant.
Sign a Joinder Agreement with Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund (CPSF). Be sure to designate MCA as your school of choice.
Submit completed Joinder to our school, MCA.
CPSF will send a letter confirming your awarded credits equalling 90% of your total contribution and requesting a check.
Mail your check to CPSF within 60 days and 100% will be sent to our school.
You will receive a K-1 form to file with your taxes that provides a tax credit.
Donors must be employed by or own a For Profit Company OR own stock in a business that operates in Pennsylvania. Donors must pay at least $3,500 in Pennsylvania state taxes annually.
For Couples Married Filing Jointly: One must be employed by or own a For Profit Company OR own stock in a business that operates in Pennsylvania
