Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit

Provide financial assistance to deserving students while enjoying tax relief … Invest in the Virginia Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit Program
What is the Virginia Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit (EISTC) Program?
  • Virginia’s EISTC program offers donors 65% of their donation returned to them in Virginia tax credits.
  • Donations to foundations approved by the Virginia Department of Education are distributed as scholarships for students from low-income families to attend accredited private schools.
  • Virginia budgets $25 million each year for this program, which continues until 2028.
How is this donation program different from a regular donation to the school or a scholarship program?
  • Donors receive Virginia tax credits for 65% of the full value of the donation.
  • Donors who itemize ALSO receive federal and Virginia tax deductions for charitable contributions.
  • Both individuals and businesses are eligible.
  • Tax credits are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to Department of Education pre-authorization.
  • Donors should include a Letter of Intent requesting their scholarships support students at Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School.
