Stambaugh Ness Supports Hoffman Academy with $5,000 EITC Donation


Littlestown, PAHoffman Homes for Youth received a $5,000 donation from Stambaugh Ness to support the great work of Hoffman Academy, the program's onsite day school and a designated EIO, or educational improvement organization, by the state of Pennsylvania.


The generous donation was gifted through the Commonwealth's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, which enables businesses that pay state taxes in Pennsylvania to direct their tax dollars to a qualifying organization—ensuring that their tax money is put to worthy use at an organization of their choosing, while also offering a beneficial tax credit for the donor organization.


"We're happy to support Hoffman Academy in its mission to provide an advanced curriculum and an exceptional education for the students it serves," says Larry Bream, a principal with Stambaugh Ness. Hoffman Academy, established in the fall of 2015, offers a challenging and progressive education for students who reside at Hoffman Homes for Youth, as well as for day students from throughout the area who require an IEP, or individualized education program. "The generous support of benefactors like Stambaugh Ness helps us purchase learning tools, technology and enrichment programs that directly benefit our students and support ideal learning experiences," says Hoffman Academy Principal Walt Smith.


Hoffman Homes CEO and President Mitch Snider agrees, "We are grateful for Stambaugh Ness' support, and for the consideration of all of our EITC supporters. Each gift gives our students—many of them children in care at Hoffman Homes for Youth—the chance at a brighter academic future...and we can think of no more worthy investment than that."
