In collaboration with BLOCS, Children’s Scholarship Fund, The Independent Mission Schools, Faith in the Future, The Archdiocese of Philadelphia and The Philadelphia School Advocacy Partners, we are planning a rally on Monday at Governor Wolf’s regional office at The Bellevue (200 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102) and we NEED parents and students who receive need based scholarships through the EITC and OSTC programs to attend!
Governor Wolf has decided not to release approval letters for companies who have applied for tax credits for donating to approved scholarship organizations in the Commonwealth until a full budget is approved.
If these approval letters are not released immediately, tens of millions of dollars could be lost in donations this year. The result would be thousands of students not receiving scholarships for the 2016 / 2017 school year in the Philadelphia area. This is a very real danger!
Please plan on joining us Monday afternoon at 3:30pm to let Governor Wolf know that these scholarships are needed by thousands of families in the area and these approval letters must be released immediately!
For more information please look at the event page on Facebook- We hope to see you Monday!
