FWISD Employees: Don’t Miss Out on Big Prizes For Giving to United Way

Fort Worth ISD employees who submit online donations to the District’s 2019 United Way Campaign are automaticaly eligible for multiple prizes including a two-night hotel stay in downtown Fort Worth and gift cards.

Campaign fund raising for employees and students started, Monday October 21 and continues through November 1. Online giving ends November 8.

“When you give to United Way, you are making a difference in individual lives.,” said Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. “Your support insures the success of our children, the integrity of our families and neighborhoods, and a second chance for people to rebuild their lives.” 

FWISD employees who submit online donations are eligible for multiple prizes including a two-night stay at the Embassy Suites in downtown Fort Worth that will be awarded to two campaign donors or a $200 Target gift card. The FWISD department contributing the most to the campaign will receive four $25 gift cards from Texas Live!

FWISD employees received an email from United Way of Tarrant County October 21 with personalized login information for donating online, details on what the nonprofit does and how to help.

Students can participate in the campaign on their respective campuses through coin drives and other fundraising efforts.

Once again, employees can make online donations by credit/debit card or payroll deductions this year. Donations will be deducted from employee’s paychecks over eight months from January to August.

Employees wanting to submit a donation by check may do so by completing a paper pledge form by Friday, November 1 and returning it to their department/campus campaign coordinator.

When donating, employees can specify the agencies or programs they’d like their donations to support and 100% of the donation will support the cause or agency designated.

The 2019 District goal is increasing participation 20% above the number of participants in 2018.

Campaign participation is voluntary.

United Way of Tarrant County partners with over 45 nonprofit agencies to support more than 300,000 people annually in need with resources and various services.
