Help make college a reality
Each year, Dallas ISD supports the United Negro College Fund—the nation’s largest minority education organization—by launching a workplace campaign to raise funds for deserving students to attend college. The funds raised from this campaign will be given as scholarships to eligible seniors of all races in the district who plan to attend a historically black college or university or any other four-year accredited U.S. college or university in the fall of 2020.
The UNCF/Dallas ISD Kick-Off Rally will take place at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Center for Community Cooperation—Oak Corner Building, 2900 Live Oak St. During the rally, each campus/department coordinator will receive a UNCF packet with detailed instructions, meet with local UNCF representatives, enjoy refreshments, and have a chance to win great prizes. Each campus/department should select a representative to attend the kickoff. All representative should register for the event on Cornerstone (search for 2020 UNCF Workplace Campaign).
The fundraising period will begin Friday, Jan. 31, and close Tuesday, March 31. Employees may give a one time donation or choose a monthly payroll deduction in Oracle under Employee Self Service.
