Tompkins Community Bank Donates $332,000 to Youth Educational Organizations

Underscoring its dedication to the communities it serves, Tompkins Community Bank announced that it has committed $332,000 in 2022-2023 to 51 youth education organizations across southeastern Pennsylvania that qualify under the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. The bank’s most recent commitment raises Tompkins’ cumulative donation total to more than $3.7 million since it began participating in the EITC program in 2001.

“Investing in the wellbeing of the communities we serve is central to our mission as a community bank,” said Ginger Kunkel, president of Tompkins’ Pennsylvania market. “And participating in the EITC program is, at its core, an investment in our community’s future. It’s a commitment to our youth and the incredible organizations that serve local children across the region.”

Schools, nonprofits and scholarship foundations are amongst the types of organizations that use EITC funds to support growing youth programs. Recipients of Tompkins’ EITC funding for the 2022-2023 year cover a myriad of interest areas, including Big Brothers Big Sisters Berks County, the Elmwood Park Zoo, St. Joseph Center for Special Learning, the Reading Public Library System and Settlement Music School.
