Tompkins VIST Bank recently supported the work of the Foundation for Pottstown Education through funding in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC). The check for $3,000 will support the STEAM Program in the Pottstown School District.
EITC is a program providing tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to a Scholarship Organization, an Educational Improvement Organization, and/or a Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization. Businesses, as well as organizations receiving the EITC funding, must apply and be approved by the Department of Community and Economic Development to participate. The Foundation is an approved Educational Improvement Organization.
Tompkins VIST President and CEO, Scott Gruber stated that the bank is proud to support organizations in our communities through the EITC Program. He also thanked the Foundation for its partnership and the work that it does to improve our communities.
This gift was presented to the Foundation’s Executive Director, Joe Rusiewicz by Frank Strunk, Senior Vice President Commercial Banking Relationship Manager and Joe Cavallo Assistant Vice President Business Development Officer. The donation is Tompkins VIST Banks’ gift to the Foundation’s Business Division Annual Support Campaign.
