Recently Northwest Savings Bank presented a $40,000 check to the Elk County Community Foundation to be utilized as part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) which will make grants available to area public schools to support innovative educational programs that do not fall within the typical academic program.
The funds for these innovative programs are administered and distributed through the foundation, which has been designated to serve as an Educational Improvement Organization by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
