WEST PALM BEACH — The School District of Palm Beach County recently kicked off a fundraising campaign to support four nonprofit groups that do important work in the community and for public education.

The district’s One Giving campaign will benefit four organizations: Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Florida Future Educators of America, the United Negro College Fund and the United Way of Palm Beach County. Employees have an opportunity throughout the One Giving campaign to learn more about how these organizations support Palm Beach County and its students, and then choose which groups they would like to support with tax-deductible contributions.

“As Palm Beach County’s largest employer, we know the

impact that we can have when we focus our efforts to help our community,” said Superintendent E. Wayne Gent. “By all of us coming together as one, we can make a powerful difference in the lives of many individuals and families who are helped by these important organizations.”

The campaign will run until March 13, and will be promoted through special events around the district. Contributions can be made through payroll deductions or through one-time contributions.

More than 5,300 employees contributed $281,620 during last year’s campaign. This year, organizers hope to boost employee participation by 10 percent.
