Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)

Support School Tours • Gain Tax Credits • Earn Sponsor Recognition

Support the Erie Art Museum’s education program. You gain all the benefits of sponsorship and the satisfaction that your money is helping stimulate and inspire Erie’s youth.

Erie Art Museum tours build on children’s natural curiosity and energy. The Museum staff uses a variety of storytelling, games, movement, and art-making to allow every student to observe art closely and think critically.

There is a Superhero inside all of us, we just need the courage to put on the cape.

Erie Art Museum tours for public schools are officially designated for receiving EITC monies. In 2016 the Museum led 42 tours serving 1782 children; 63% of the groups were economically disadvantaged. ALL of our tours are subsidized, as the price of the tour ($10 per student) does not cover the Museum’s staff and material expenses. Many groups are further subsidized because they are unable to pay even the market price. EITC monies allow the Museum to serve all students regardless of ability to pay.
