The School District of Palm Beach County kicked off a month-long fundraising campaign Tuesday, Feb. 17 to support four nonprofit groups doing important work in the community and for public education.
The district’s One Giving Campaign will benefit four organizations: the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Florida Future Educators of America, the United Negro College Fund and the United Way of Palm Beach County. Employees will have an opportunity throughout the One Giving Campaign to learn more about how these organizations support Palm Beach County and its students, and choose which groups they would like to support with tax-deductible contributions.
“As Palm Beach County’s largest employer, we know the impact that we can have when we focus our efforts to help our community,” Superintendent E. Wayne Gent said. “By all of us coming together as one, we can make a powerful difference in the lives of individuals and families who are helped by these important organizations.”
The 2015 One Giving Campaign will run through March 13, and will be promoted through special events throughout the district. Contributions can be made through payroll deductions or through one-time contributions.
More than 5,300 employees contributed $281,620 during the 2014 One Giving Campaign.
