M&T Bank Supports Old Forge Education

  • Print

The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, a division of Commonwealth Charitable Management headquartered in Montrose, is pleased to announce that through its Education Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) M&T Bank recently provided $2,500 to assist Old Forge School District students attending the Finance Park program of Junior Achievement. The Finance Park addresses such topics as budgeting, career choices, wages and taxes, investing, credit and debt, among various topics of financial planning so important to today’s students.

Peter Quigg, President of The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, adds that an affiliated School District Foundation has been established by Old Forge called The Foundry Fund. The intent of this school district foundation is to manage assets to assist special unfunded projects in the Old Forge schools. In the past students have also benefitted from assistance to attend Dual Enrollment classes from Lackawanna College and the University of Scranton which earn them college credit while attending High School. More can be learned about The Community Foundation at www.community-foundation.org.
