The Donate to Educate programs provides scholarships to graduating seniors. This blog will touch on the kickoff to 2016’s program with classes beginning on August 22nd.
100% of the money raised from the Donate to Educate program benefits the CFEF scholarship fund. The program allows employees to contribute to the Foundation by making a one-time donation or through payroll deductions. Over 1,200 teachers and staff in CFISD contribute to Donate to Educate on an annual basis. Employees in the district have donated almost $150,000 in payroll deductions and donations. By donating $100 annually through either method, you will receive a new superhero t-shirt along with several perks. You can wear your superhero t-shirt with jeans on the first Monday of every month. During the school year, you receive monthly coupons to local businesses during the school year. Lastly, there is a reward for the school with the highest participation in Donate to Educate.
The CFEF engages in campus visits to sign up new members. In a nice partnership, the Superintendent’s Fun Run benefits Donate to Educate. The last Fun Run, which was held in February 2016, raised $53,000. For more information on Donate to Educate, please visit our website.
