March 2, 2017 - Representatives of CAPTRUST Strategic Advisor Group based in Bethlehem, recently presented a $35,000 contribution to King’s College officials.  The donation is through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.

A portion of the funds will be used to fund the summer residential program of the McGowan Hispanic Outreach Program at King’s.  The residential program is a three-week enrichment program for 15 to 20 rising junior and senior Latino high school students.   The remainder of the donation will allow King’s to expand its College Discovery Program.  The program allows interested students in local high schools an opportunity to earn college credits and experience campus life.
