Few partnership options represent a more rewarding investment in the future than Youth Prepardness - where your Red Cross teaches the children of today to become the leaders of tomorrow. Through our Community Education Youth Programs, young people are motivated to give back to their communities by donating their time, skills, and energy to improving the lives of others and making their communities better places to live. Corporate Partnership Opportunities Include:
Sponsor a Red Cross Club - Red Cross Clubs provide after-school opportunities that empower students with life-saving skills and knowledge, enabling them to educate their peers and experience contributing to their schools and communities.
Sponsor a week of “Camp Save-A-Life” at the Red Cross House - Camp Save-a-Life provides youth with the opportunity to learn valuable disaster preparedness techniques and leadership skills. Youth will become certified in CPR and First Aid while gaining skills in swimming, leadership and communication. Most importantly, they will have fun while learning how to keep their families safe!
Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) - A program of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the EITC Program provides significant tax credits to eligible companies that make a contribution to approved organizations like the American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter. (State funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.)
Initially, your company will receive a tax credit for up to 75% of your contribution. With a two-year commitment, the credit increases up to 90% of the contributed amount, to a maximum of $200,000 per year. For complete program details, visit the state's website.
