As an Alumnus

As a graduate of Nether Providence, Swarthmore High School or, even more recently, Strath Haven High School you know what a quality education you received.  Show your school spirit by contributing to the Alumni Fund.  Whether it’s a gift to honor the year you graduated or a pledge to do even more at our $1,000 Leadership Council level, we are counting on the support of our accomplished and generous alumni to maintain the excellence of the WSSD.

As a Business

The Pennsylvania Education Improvement Credit Program (EITC) is a tax credit of up to 90% for corporations that donate to an educational improvement organization implementing programs not supported by the school district budget.  The Foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools is a primary beneficiary of this program.

The EITC program, however, will only disperse $20 million for the 2011-2012 school year and the program is always oversubscribed.  Tax credits are given on a first-come basis—businesses must apply on Thursday, July 1, 2011!
