The Employee Giving Program gives all ESSD personnel the opportunity to make a gift to the Educational Foundation through payroll deduction. Every dollar contributed—big or small—makes a huge impact for our students. All donations received go directly to the Teachers Grants Fund.

The payroll deduction takes place each pay period. Contributions are tax deductible. Participants may modify or discontinue their deduction at any time by sending a written request to Sarah Baker.

Support your fellow teachers, staff and students through payroll deductions by filling out the form below.

If you already give to the Educational Foundation, Thank You! If you’d like to increase your donation amount, you may do so on the form below as well. To check your giving status, contact Sarah Baker.

Thank you in advance for your generous gift!
