Frontier Supports Community Foundation with Pre-K Scholarships for Education
Frontier Communications is donating $2,500 to The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains in Pre-Kindergarten scholarship support for children to attend Pre-Schools throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. The scholarship funds are part of Frontier's participation in the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (PA EITC) and will provide an opportunity for eligible children to receive Pre-K tuition assistance.
The PA EITC program offers tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to a state-approved scholarship organization, an educational improvement organization, and/or a pre-kindergarten scholarship organization such as The Community Foundation. The businesses may direct their donations to specific organizations from a list of eligible participants listed on the PA EITC website.
For the 2014-2015 academic year Frontier donated $300,000 overall through the PA EITC program to support scholarships for private education including pre-kindergarten, and educational improvement initiatives approved by the state.
