The Olympia School District Education Foundation continues to encourage OSD employees to make a monthly contribution through Automatic Payroll Deduction. Since 1998, the Foundation has awarded nearly $2 million in assistance to OSD students and educators through such programs as the Principal’s Emergency Fund, Teaching & Learning Grants and the Mental Health Initiative.
Donations in any amount can have a significant impact. For example, if every OSD employee donated just $1 per month, the Foundation could award one additional $1,500 grant every month. A single employee’s donation of $15 per month could help provide Internet access to a student in need for a year.
Registration is now paperless and only takes a couple of minutes. 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 are all set.
Employees already making a monthly donation through OSD Payroll never need to re-enroll.
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.
