Foundation for Catholic Education

Anthony Fiorenza serves on the Foundation for Catholic Education board.  Both Anthony and Derek contribute to the Foundation For Catholic Education as do their companies: Summit Group Retirement Planners, Inc; The Summit Group Associates, Inc.; and Infinity Benefits Group, Inc.


The distribution of EITC and OSTC funds has increased dramatically over the past five years. Our goal is to leverage the EITC program to maintain and increase the enrollment at all the parochial elementary and high schools in the surrounding Philadelphia areas. To achieve our goal, the successful distribution and communication of EITC and OSTC funding is critical to the Catholic schools.

What is the EITC program?

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program offers businesses the opportunity to contribute tuition assistance for families who wish to provide their children a Catholic Education. The EITC program offers donors a PA tax credit of 75% for one-year commitments and a 90% tax credit for two-year commitments.

Please consider supporting the Foundation for Catholic Education through EITC contributions today. With EITC, you can donate $10,000 to Catholic Education with a net outlay of $1,000! For questions about EITC donations or the application process, please contact the Foundation.
