Community Arts Center awarded EITC funds from PPL Electric Utilities

The Community Arts Center has received $5,000 from PPL Electric Utilities through the Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit program. The contribution will be used to support the Educational Series program at the CAC.

For 25 years, the Community Arts Center has offered student-centered shows within its Family Series, Educational Series and Student Summer Stock programs, thanks in large part to the vital support of the business community.

“PPL Foundation is pleased to support the Community Arts Center and its Educational Series, which reaches 10,000 students and nine school districts,” said Tracie Witter, PPL regional affairs director. “The arts are essential to creating well-rounded individuals, and PPL realizes this is especially important today.”

EITC grants allow approved organizations to invest in projects that improve access to high-quality education programs. Organizations must be prequalified by the state Department of Community & Economic Development to participate.

“The Educational Series is vitally important to the CAC’s outreach into the community. Many young people do not have the opportunity to experience the arts, making this programming an essential part of education beyond the classroom,” said Ana Gonzalez-White, CAC development director.

Funding for the educational programming is derived from various sources, including EITC funds, donations, corporate sponsorships and grants.
