Posted on September 23, 2013, in Academics, Organizations

PNC Bank donated $2,000.00 to the General McLane Foundation. PNC Bank’s Vice President of Healthcare and Public Finance Colleen Gildea presented the check to Superintendent Richard Scaletta on Thursday.

The Foundation was selected by PNC Bank from a list of schools through their participation in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.

The funds go directly to the EITC program, which is use for literacy, science and electronic classroom development.

“We are grateful to PNC not just because of what we can accomplish with their donation, but for the fact that their donation is a recognition of the good things we do at General McLane,” said Superintendent Richard Scaletta.

The General McLane Foundation was founded in 2005 as an organization exclusively for charitable educational purposes that will benefit the students of the General McLane School District. Each year, the Foundation hosts the Holiday Arts Fair and the Golf Outing – two major fundraising events that help fund scholarships to graduating seniors.

PNC Bank has donated to the Foundation in the past. PNC Bank has developed a series of projects to invest within local communities. PNC Bank was ranked as the 6th largest bank-held wealth manager by Barron’s and the 6th largest ultra-affluent provider by Family Wealth Alliance in 2011. In 2012, the Bank was awarded “Great WorkPlace Award for highly engaged employees committed to customer service” by Gallup.
