Fort Worth ISD 2018 United Way Campaign Begins

The 2018 Fort Worth ISD United Way Campaign will run from October 15 through 26. Once again, this year, employees will have an opportunity to make online donations. 

Here’s how it works:

  • Employees will receive an email from the United Way of Tarrant County with specific login information to access the secure FWISD pledge website. 
  • Each employee will have the opportunity to review information for the 2018 campaign at his/her desktop and consider the size of the pledge they wish to make to the United Way.
  •  A confirmation email will be sent after completing the donation.

Last year, FWISD contributed more than $175,000 to its United Way Campaign. This year, the District anticipates contributing $250,000 in donations from its students and employees.

United Way of Tarrant County has long invested in Fort Worth ISD students and continues to make education a funding priority. In recent years, funds donated to the District by the nonprofit has supported programs focused on improving elementary students’ literacy skills, helping middle school students identify and prepare for career dreams, and preparing high school students for college and careers. 

Additionally, the nonprofit offers resources to assist FWISD families, including placing low-income families on a path to financial stability and assisting families with ongoing health issues. 

If you have any questions regarding the campaign or online pledge system contact Cindy Ybarra at 817-814-3350 or cindy.ybarra@fwisd.org.
