DALLAS TWP. — Philadelphia Insurance Companies recently donated $10,525 to Misericordia University through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.
The funding will support programs for children with communication difficulties at the Misericordia University Speech-Language and Hearing Center in John J. Passan Hall.
The center offers free and low-cost speech-language pathology services to clients in the regional community. Faculty-supervised graduate students assess and treat patients of all ages, including many children from northeast Pennsylvania and surrounding areas.
PA EITC offers tax credits to eligible businesses that contribute to a state-approved scholarship organization, an educational improvement organization, and a pre-kindergarten scholarship organization. The benefactor may direct donations to a specific organization from a list of eligible participants. Misericordia University is approved by the state to be an Educational Improvement Organization.
