New Tripoli Bank has donated $100,000 to the Northwestern Lehigh Educational Foundation as a result of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program of Pennsylvania.
This donation will be used to support educational programs that might not otherwise receive funding, giving students in the Northwestern Lehigh School District the tools and skills they need to thrive in an increasingly digital-focused world.
The funds provided by this donation will support the SMART Board Project that works to supply SMART Boards to classrooms in the school district, the Digital Immersion Program that provides Chromebooks to students, the Virtual Reality Program allowing students to access Virtual Reality Google Expedition kits for enhanced learning opportunities, and the Model-Based Inquiry Program purchasing equipment necessary for real-world projects in math, engineering, and STEAM lab classes.
New Tripoli Bank is a proud supporter of education and this donation ensures our local school districts can provide their students with modern technology and equipment, as well as opportunities that can help them prepare for future careers or higher education after graduation.
