Funds will provide scholarship assistance to Scranton Prep students and families
First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, today announced an Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to Scranton Preparatory School's P.J.H.S Scholarship Organization.
Through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program, FNCB contributed more than $181,000 in 2012 to eligible scholarship, educational improvement, and pre-kindergarten scholarship organizations across Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wayne and Monroe counties.
The $47,400 donation will help provide scholarship assistance to students and families who cannot afford full tuition costs.
The support of the Scranton Prep's scholarship fund represents part of FNCB's larger Community Caring initiative. Through outreach programs, donations and an employee volunteer network, FNCB is committed to helping the communities they serve.
