ETC/OSTC  If you own a business in the state of Pennsylvania you can help West Catholic.  Your business tax can be redirected to the school through the OSTC program.  The tax dollars are then used to assist low income families who live within the boundaries of underperforming schools to attend private schools. In addition to helping children get the education they deserve you can write off the contribution on both your State and Federal tax returns.
