Make Your Tax Credits Count

November 19, 2018

Dear Friend,

The Russell Byers Charter School is delighted to announce that we are once again approved to receive gifts through Pennsylvania’s tax credit programs-EITC-SO, OSTC and EITC-Pre-K. As another year comes to a close and we celebrate the addition of our new middle school, we hope businesses with tax credits remaining will consider allocating them to Russell Byers Charter School. Qualified individuals can also take advantage of this opportunity and receive a credit on their PA taxes with a gift to the Byers School. Your support can have a tremendous impact on the lives of our students.

RBCS continues to be grateful for the businesses and individuals supporting our 710 students through tax credit giving. Scholarships provide a life-changing education for our students most from the city’s most underserved communities. We are serious when we say our students are Ours for Life! We continue to provide assistance and support as our students move on to higher education. This year one of our very first students has returned to us as a 5th Grade English teacher and we are thrilled to have her with us once again!

Please join with us in giving a high quality education to these children. For more information, please contact RBCS co-founder Laurada Byers at

With grit and gratitude,
Laurada Byers
