QR In the Community: Greater Latrobe Welcomes Grants

The following is an excerpt from the January 21, 2010 Pittsburgh Tribune Review article, "Greater Latrobe Welcomes Grants," authored by A.J. Panian, which detailed recent donations made to Greater Latrobe School District:

"Greater Latrobe School Board on Tuesday accepted a bevy of grants and donations...The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County gave the district $2,565 via the Quatrini Rafferty Attorneys-at-Law's participation in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program."

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) enables companies to support local non-profit charities instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg. Since the inception of the program, 3,600 Pennsylvania business have pledged in excess of $350 million dollars to local charities and school districts.
