Scholarship Giving Campaign

UNCF A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

January 25, 2019

Dear Crowley ISD community,

You can help students in Crowley ISD achieve their college dreams! This year, our district is partnering with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the nation’s largest minority education organization, by launching a workplace giving campaign to raise scholarship funds for deserving college-bound students in Crowley ISD.

Every dollar donated in Crowley ISD will be awarded to Crowley ISD students. Seniors of all races from Crowley High School and North Crowley High School can apply for scholarships to attend any four-year college or university.

The workplace giving campaign begins in February as part of our Black History Month celebration. Crowley ISD employees interested in giving have two ways to contribute:

1. Electronically through the UNCF website. Click the following link to give electronically: UNCF Website.
2. Payroll deduction (One-time or monthly. Monthly deductions will be taken out during a four (4) month period effective March through June of 2019. Payroll deduction forms must be signed by the employee and sent to Crystel Polk in CISD Central Administration via interoffice mail or by Feb. 22, 2019.

Parents, students and community members can also participate in the campaign at the UNCF website.

Your individual contribution is vital in accomplishing our mission of helping deserving Crowley ISD students achieve post-secondary opportunities. UNCF has made the dream of attending college a reality for thousands of deserving young adults throughout their 70-year history.

I am excited to serve as the district campaign coordinator for the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
