Business Partners Wanted
The UMEF is reaching out to the business community to help us continue our goal of outfitting every classroom with Interactive Smart Boards and other technologies. Businesses who want to contribute to this goal, can receive a 75 to 90 percent credit on their state taxes.
In 2012, the UMEF became part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Executed by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the program awards tax credits to businesses that make contributions to approved scholarship organizations and/or educational improvement organizations.
Businesses can apply for the tax credit program if they are subject to:
- Corporate Net Income Tax
- Bank & Trust Company Shares Tax
- Insurance Premiums Tax
- Capital Stock Franchise Tax
- Title Insurance Company Shares Tax
- Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
The Upper Moreland Education Foundation is seeking interested parties to serve on its Board of Directors. The Foundation, formed in 1999, is a tax exempt not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing the Upper Moreland community with enhanced learning opportunities through creative and innovative educational programs. The Foundation enjoys a close working relationship with Upper Moreland schools, and has funded programs with an array of other community institutions including the fire company, the Public Library, and private and parochial schools.
Interested parties need not have a professional background in education as the Foundation benefits from having a Board of Directors with a wide array of backgrounds and life experiences. Additionally, the Foundation especially benefits from participation by members of varied ages - from young adults to retirees. The time-commitment necessary to serve on the Board is not substantial and requires only a minimum of attendance at monthly Board meetings, and participation in the Foundation's annual or semi-annual fundraising activities. For more information or to arrange a visit to a Board meeting, please contact Board President Dan Noble or Board Secretary Nora Rosenbaum .
