C&N donation supports Penn College dual enrollment program


C&N has contributed $6,000 through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program to Pennsylvania College of Technology in support of the college’s dual enrollment program.

The bank’s EITC donation will benefit Penn College NOW, a program that enables academically qualified high school and career technology center students to take tuition-free courses for college credit. Last year, 1,700 students earned nearly 6,900 credits valued at more than $3.8 million through Penn College NOW.

C&N has provided philanthropic support to Penn College since 1983 and is part of the college’s Corporate Tomorrow Makers program, a comprehensive initiative to engage corporate partners in a range of mutually beneficial partnership possibilities.

“We thank C&N for this generous EITC donation to help support Penn College NOW,” said Elizabeth A. Biddle, director of corporate relations.  “As a Corporate Tomorrow Maker partner, C&N is helping high school students access postsecondary education by saving money and building momentum toward a degree that works.”

“As a Corporate Tomorrow Maker, C&N is pleased to provide EITC support to the Penn College Foundation,” said Executive Vice President/Region President Tom Rudy. “Penn College NOW is a valuable program that helps high school students explore college-level courses and program pathways.”

The Penn College Foundation is approved as an Educational Improvement Organization under the EITC program, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development.
