VlDEOS: Univest Educational Giving

Univest Financial is proud to support educational organizations in each of the counties it serves. One way it provides support is through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Donations support educational improvement programs and scholarships for kindergarten through 12th grades in schools that qualify to receive the funding. The money received helps public schools provide innovative programming to enhance learning opportunities and allows private schools to offer need-based scholarships to give families the opportunity to provide a faith-based education that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.

Below are videos that highlight our support in Montgomery, Bucks, Philadelphia, Lehigh, Lancaster, Chester and Delaware counties.
