SOUDERTON >> Univest Corp. recently awarded $225,778 to nine educational organizations in Montgomery County that qualify for the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
The donations will be used to support educational improvement programs and scholarships for kindergarten through 12th grades. Ultimately, these funds will provide public schools with innovative programming to enhance learning opportunities and allow private schools to offer need-based scholarships to give families the opportunity to provide a faith-based education that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
