EITC Giving

The Wilma Theater is an EITC-eligible Educational Improvement Organization! When your corporation gives to our Wilmagination, Wilma Classroom, or Camp Wilma educational programming, it receives a dollar-for-dollar tax credit through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program up to 75% of their contribution— or 90% if they agree to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years — benefitting both your corporation and Philadelphia’s students. Learn more about how to give to the Wilma through the EITC program here.
