The Fall round of Payroll Deduction Grants has started and applications are now available.
The Education Foundation's Payroll Deduction Grants are funded entirely by small paycheck deductions given by BCSD staff members. 100% of the donated funds are used to support innovative and enriching educational projects for our students. Awarded amounts depend on the number of requests and the fund's total value, but a typical Payroll Deduction Grant has been around $500 or less.
Applications are due September 22, 2017 and are available at the link below.
If you would like to contribute to the Payroll Deduction Grant fund, click here for the deduction form. Completed forms can be submitted to the Payroll office in the BCSD Administration Building.
