Other Ways to Donate

We thank you for your commitment

St. Anthony School Programs relies on the generosity of our donors to help further our mission to educate children with Down syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other special needs. Your support enables us to provide an enriched curriculum, vocational, and mobility training, and services such as speech, occupational, and music therapy!



EITC Tax Credit

Contributions made through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program allow St. Anthony’s to provide tuition aid to families in need. Through the EITC Program, a business or individual contributes to a qualified Educational Improvement Organization, such as St. Anthony School Programs, making the contributor eligible for a tax credit equal to 75% of the contribution or 90% if the same contribution is made for a two-year commitment. Your EITC donation to St. Anthony’s will help a child with special needs receive the education they need to go on to live as independently as possible! We encourage you to work with our partners at Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund or the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh if you are interested in donating through the EITC Program. For questions, please contact Jennie Colbert at 724-940-9020 x 103.

United Way

Many donors choose to support our students by participating in the United Way campaign. Giving through the United Way Campaign at your workplace is an easy and effective way to make a difference in a student’s life. Simply designate St. Anthony School Programs Donor Option #194 in the space provided on the application form and you can begin supporting our students through your payroll deductions.

Diocesan Annual Collection

A special collection to benefit St. Anthony School Programs and DePaul School for Hearing and Speech is typically taken the third weekend of January at all masses at each Parish throughout the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
Your donation will help St. Anthony School Programs and DePaul School for Hearing and Speech to further our goals of providing quality educational programs and services to our students.
Look for a special envelope during this time.

Knights of Columbus

Through extraordinary efforts, The Knights of Columbus have raised millions of dollars to support St. Anthony School Programs and McGuire Memorial. When you see the Knights after a Sunday mass, collecting pennies, in the community distributing Tootsie Rolls, or hosting a special event, know that the donations you make at those times, are helping individuals of St. Anthony’s and McGuire Memorial.
