2019 United Way Campaign Extended to November 22

There's still time to make a difference. The Fort Worth ISD 2019 United Way Campaign is extended to Friday, November 22, allowing employees more time to give online. 

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.

“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 are encouraged to check their email inboxes for recent messages from United Way of Tarrant County that includes personalized login information for donating online, details on what the nonprofit does and how to help.

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.

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.
