This week the Olympia School District Education Foundation (OSDEF) launched its annual Automatic Payroll Deduction campaign, which allows OSD employees to make a monthly donation in support of the Foundation’s programs, including the Principal’s Emergency Fund, Teaching & Learning Grants and Mental Health Initiative. Since 1998, the Foundation has awarded nearly $2 million in grants and programs to OSD students and educators.
Donations in any amount can have a significant impact, ranging from funding Teaching and Learning grants to providing Internet access to students in need.
To sign up for Automatic Payroll Deduction, visit https://www.osdef.org/donate, scroll down to the OSD logo, then click the “Payroll Deduction” button. Enter the amount you wish to donate, then select “I would like to make my donation ongoing” if you prefer that option. Once you’ve added your building, first and last name, work email and phone number, you’re all set.
Employees already making a monthly donation through OSD Payroll do not need to re-enroll.
Deductions for online forms submitted by Dec. 15, 2020 will begin Jan. 1, 2021. After the first of the year, deductions for forms submitted by the 15th of any month will begin on the 1st of the following month.
As always, donations will be directed where they are needed most. Questions? Contact OSDEF Executive Director Katy Johansson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
