Dear Silver Academy families and friends,
We have some wonderful news to share: we found out on September 5th that The Silver Academy was approved for EITC credits through our existing SPE, Harrisburg Jewish Scholarship LLC, in the amount of $600,000!! This is HUGE for us!! But guess what? We only have until October 18, 2019 to get the EITC contributions collected.This is where YOU come in...we need YOU to give us names of prospects.
Anyone who pays PA State taxes can redirect them to fund student scholarships at The Silver Academy.
, Director of Development, if you or anyone you know might be interested in participating in this amazing opportunity to ensure that scholarship funds are available for every student in need.
Please take the time to help us reach out to the community by sharing this opportunity with those you know. We are also looking for volunteers to assist with outreach phone calls. The work we do to secure EITC contributions will help to secure the health and future of the Central Pennsylvania Jewish Communities.
So, as you dip your Honeycrisp or Gala or Granny Smith apples into honey in a few weeks, let’s focus on the New Year and the awesome potential that exists within each of us.
have the opportunity to make a lasting difference and, in turn, secure the future of The Silver Academy and the Jewish Community.
Debra Freeburn, Head of School
