Gifts of Cash

Funds are then awarded to District teachers and students based on current needs identified by District staff using an equity-based formula. You’ll also have the opportunity to designate which program you’d like your donation to go to and/or donate in honor of someone special. After completing your donation at the payment screen, you’ll receive an emailed receipt detailing your gift amount. When donating in someone’s name, your receipt can be printed and tucked inside a card for a special honoree.
