Northwest Bank Donates to Preschool Scholarship Fund at CARE for Children

Northwest Bank recently made a $5,000.00 contribution to CARE for Children Rainbow Corner Preschool to fund preschool student scholarships.  The preschool is an approved Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization, through the State of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC).

Contributions made through the EITC program help CARE provide scholarships to eligible Pre-Kindergarten students to help offset the cost of tuition.  The scholarship program helps make early learning more accessible and affordable for working families.  Northwest Bank’s contribution will help fund scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year.

CARE for Children Rainbow Corner Preschool is located at the Ashley Booth CARE for Children Center in Bradford.  The preschool is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the daily schedule is aligned with Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards.  For more information, please call 814-362-4621 or visit the early learning page at
