Designate the JCC when you contribute to the United Way

Donor Codes are 9456 (South Hills) and 75 (Squirrel Hill).

When you use Donor Designation 9456 (JCC South Hills) or 75 (JCC Squirrel Hill), you support two long-standing Pittsburgh traditions—the United Way and the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh. Donations from the United Way to the JCC support the JCC Scholarship Fund, providing financial assistance to people who cannot afford the full cost of services.

The JCC provides services to the community regardless of age, race, religion, national origin, special need or ability to pay.

How to donate:

  • Specify Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh on your United Way pledge form, under the section marked specific agency.
  • Designate a portion to the Impact Fund supporting United Way.
  • Write in 9456 or 75 as the United Way code number, depending on your primary place of JCC membership.

The JCC is grateful for your support.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

The Pennsylvania Pre-Kindergarten Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) provides tax credits for eligible businesses making contributions to state approved pre-kindergarten scholarship organizations.  Businesses are eligible to apply for EITC credits if they pay Pennsylvania taxes.  The maximum contribution a business can make under this program is $200,000.  The tax benefits are generous with a 100% credit given to the first $10,000 and a 90% credit for the remaining contribution up to $200,000.

The JCC’s Early Childhood Development Center has long been a beneficiary of these dollars through the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s EITC foundation – a state approved scholarship organization.   These dollars provide needs-based scholarships for children who otherwise would be unable to attend the JCC’s early childhood development program.

Please contact Roi Mezare, rmez[email protected] of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh at 412-992-5230 to learn more about the program and whether or not your business is eligible to apply for the program.  We encourage you to participate in the program should your business be eligible.
