C&N donates $16,000 through EITC contributions to Bucks Historical Society

Posted

Financial services company C&N recently donated $16,000 to the Bucks County Historical Society under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC).

The private nonprofit Bucks County Historical Society operates the Mercer Museum & Library and Fonthill Museum. Located in Doylestown, the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle are historic castles celebrating the legacy of Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930), American archaeologist, anthropologist, ceramicist and scholar.

The donation will be used for engaging summer camp experiences and field trips that offer students programs that feature inquiry-based learning, interactive content, and direct experience with original and/or reproductive artifacts.

“The Bucks County Historical Society is grateful for this EITC donation from C&N. This support of our educational endeavors impacts students across the region and allows us to reach youth audiences in meaningful ways and inspire a love of history in the next generation,” said Kyle McKoy, president and CEO.

On hand to present the check and represent C&N were Blair T. Rush, president of C&N’s Southeast Region; Kelley Cwiklinski, SVP, director of commercial lending; and Rob Loughery, C&N board member.

“Pennsylvania’s EITC program offers C&N a way to support organizations like the Bucks County Historical Society in their mission to share the notable history of the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle,” Rush said. “We enthusiastically advocate for these institutions that are a treasure and distinctive to Bucks County.”
