We prepare boys for success in college and beyond. Join us in this important mission by donating to Boys’ Latin today.

Each year, Boys’ Latin provides a first-rate educational experience to 800 young men. Having been historically underserved in traditional school settings, the average student arrives to Boys’ Latin 3 to 4 grade levels behind in math and reading. Our intentionally planned academic and extracurricular programs allow students to make the dramatic academic gains necessary for success in college and beyond. We are proud of their accomplishments to-date: on average, 98% of students are accepted to college, and, more importantly, 89% matriculate into and 87% persist through college.

Donate today so that all students, present and future, can achieve success at the same level!

Through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, a business of any size can redirect its tax liability to an eligible Educational Improvement Organization (EIO), like Boys’ Latin. In turn, we are able to provide a world-class college preparatory education to our students, and your business receives up to 90% of that donated amount credited against its corporate state taxes.

To learn more about supporting Boys’ Latin through the EITC program, review our brochure linked here or contact our Director of Strategy & Impact Colleen Smith at 215-470-3408 or

EITC-EIO tax credits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no minimum to participate and businesses can receive up to $750,000 in tax credits annually. For a comprehensive list of PA taxes that EITC-EIO credits can be applied against, please click here to visit the Department of Community and Economic Development website.
