Mid Penn Bank recently presented a $2,500 contribution to Berks Nature. Berks Nature was one of many worthwhile recipients of the bank’s contributions through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program in Berks County. Berks Nature provides exciting and informative learning programs focused on promoting the preservation and conservation of nature and our natural resources.

Mid Penn Bank donated a total of $700,000 through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s EITC program in 2019. These funds were distributed to a variety of organizations throughout its Pennsylvania footprint. Donations given through the EITC program provide educational organizations the funds needed to support scholarship opportunities and to help enhance existing educational programs.

“Mid Penn Bank is pleased to contribute to Berks Nature – an organization that is making an incredible impact on our community,” said Mid Penn Bank Regional President Joseph Butto. “We are happy to help support this organization’s innovative programs that teach the importance and significance of conserving our natural resources.”
