It is with great excitement that the Norfolk Education Foundation launch the fifth year of what is now called I Give for Team NPS the employee giving campaign for Norfolk Public Schools. As you may recall, NPS asked all employees of the district to join together in support of our students by making a contribution to the Norfolk Education Foundation. Thanks to a generous dollar-for-dollar match from an anonymous donor, every gift will be doubled. This year, the community has donated fabulous prizes that will be drawn each week to thank generous participants of the campaign.
In its first year, Team NPS raised more than $29,000 from NPS employees. The success of the campaign is a testament to the culture and commitment of the NPS family. This year, we hope to significantly grow participation and exceed our $40,000 goal during the six-week period beginning now and ending November 6, 2015. With your added support we'll be able to reach our goal of providing $100,000 in direct classroom support through the Mini-Grants program.
We need your help to reach these goals. We are asking you to serve as an ambassador for Team NPS within your school or department by helping us spread the word.
In addition, we ask that you consider helping in three easy ways to give:
All generous contributors are eligible for great weekly prize drawings – check back soon for details on the weekly prizes! Please note that no specific contribution amount is required to qualify for the drawings.
We hope that you will consider joining I Give for Team NPS. If you have already joined – thank you for your generosity. If we can provide anything further to help you serve as an ambassador for this program, please don’t hesitate to let us know. The outcome of this campaign will directly support your work, so thank you in advance for helping ensure its success.
