FWISD United Way Campaign Underway

Employees and students can now contribute to Fort Worth ISD’s 2019 United Way Campaign. Fund raising began Monday, October 21.

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.

“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.”

 

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.

FWISD employees who submit online donations are eligible for multiple prizes including a two-night stay at the Embassy Suites in downtown Fort Worth and gift cards.

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.

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

Over 100 employee campaign coordinators attended rally sessions where they received an overview and materials for putting on an effective fundraising campaign, Tuesday October 15 at the FWISD Professional Development Center. Coordinators who missed the rally sessions and have not picked up their campaign materials are urged to contact Cindy Ybarra in the PDC to make arrangements for picking them up.

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

FWISD’s 2019 United Way Campaign will run from Monday, October 21 to Friday, November 1. Employees have until Friday, November 8 to make online donations.

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.
