Ways to Support Charlestown Playhouse

Alec Kearns, Real Estate Advisor

Alec Kearns, Real Estate Advisor and current parent at Playschool, is offering a give back program in an effort to benefit the school that has such a profound impact on our children and community.

Through the Charlestown Playhouse Referral Program, Alec has generously offered to donate 10% of his total take home commission directly to Playschool.  The goal of the program is to be able to sponsor tuition for 1 child/year through the greater Playschool community.

If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell a home refer them to Alec Kearns and the Engel & Volkers Malvern office. If they utilize Alec Kearns as their realtor, immediately following their first closing with him he will donate 10% of his take home commission directly to Playschool.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit

The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) allows businesses to contribute up to $10,000 in scholarship funds with a dollar-for-dollar offset in the tax year contributed. In other words, small businesses can allocate their PA tax dollars to Playschool without paying anything more out of pocket for the year!
