Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

Earn valuable tax credits for your business when you support Metropolitan Ballet Company’s Kinetic Literacy Program©.

Since 2008, MBC has partnered with The School District of Philadelphia to deliver its innovative Kinetic Literacy Program© to Kindergarten through Third grade students at area elementary schools. 450 students (18 classrooms) currently participate in MBC’s on site classes annually, and our on-site programming is expanding.

Metropolitan Ballet Company (MBC) is recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) as an Educational Improvement Organization. A gift to Metropolitan Ballet Company can provide your company with a substantial tax credit through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC).

“Metropolitan Ballet Company’s Kinetic Literacy Program© for elementary school students delivers positive outcomes through its fresh approach to math and language skills, and creates lasting opportunities for engagement with the arts,” says MBC Artistic Director Lisa Collins Vidnovic. “Your support enables Metropolitan Ballet Company to further its goal of being an on-site, consistent cultural resource for underserved communities.”

Businesses large and small can apply for EITC credits through a simple, online process.
