C&N Bank donates $4,000 to PA Wilds educational programs

Citizens & Northern Bank (C&N) made a generous donation of $4,000 to the Pennsylvania Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship in May. The check was accepted by Julie Iaquinto, Founding CFO of the PA Wilds Center. Julie and the entire team of the PA Wilds Center thanks them for their support!

The donation is an EITC, or Educational Improvement Tax Credit. The PA EITC program, established in 2001, offers businesses and individuals a credit to lower their tax liability through donations to K-12 private schools, scholarship organizations, pre-K programs, and other educational enrichment initiatives.

C&N’s donation will help fund the PA Wilds educational programs for youth in our region.

Pennsylvania Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship (PA Wilds Center) is a state-approved Educational Improvement Organization (EIO). We offer innovative programming to public schools within the 12 1/2 –county Pennsylvania Wilds region. This programming includes everything from paid internships for high school students at PA Wilds Center’s PA Wilds Conservation Shops, to classes offered through our PA Wilds Outdoor Industry Exploration Series, to company models where students learn business and technical skills while tying into our regional brand and platforms such as pawilds.com.
