Creative ways to support our work


What is "EITC?" - The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program was established by the Department of Community and Economic Developement (DCED) to provide incentives to businesses that support educational improvement organizations like the Chester County Art Association.

CCAA has again this year had its ETIC status approved and is eligible to receive support as an educational improvement organization through Pennsylvania's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.  The ETIC program enables Pennsylvania - based business to receive generous tax credits by contributing to qualified organizations.

If you are not currently enrolled as an approved company, you can get more information at  If you are approved, we encourage you to select CCAA as the recipient of your educational donation.

We hope that CCAA will receive your EITC support.  Please share news of the work we do with friends and colleagues and encourage them to support our educational programming through the EITC program.  If you have any questions, or would like to make a donation, please contact Ann Christie / Associate Director at 610/696-5600 x12 or

You can decorate your walls and support the Arts!
In recent years, CCAA has worked with the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry to bring artists together with local businesses. The artists benefit by finding new exhibit spaces - and new patrons - while businesses benefit by bringing a fresh look to an office space. (So they can finally put away those old posters and staid prints!) As part of the Corporate Art Program, CCAA will cull through its datebase of more than a thousand artists and help your corporation select a variety of original artwork. CCAA will also install the work. It's an ideal way to support the Arts. Plus, if any work is sold, your corporation can take a tax deduction of 35 % of the purchase price.
