We need community wide support from residents, organizations and area businesses to help support Franklin School District. There are many ways you can help!
MAKE A CASH DONATION:
Donations of any denomination are appreciated at any time during the year. Please include a note if you would like your donation to be applied to a specific grant, honorarium (e.g. in honor of a staff retirement or a class gift), or memorial fund (e.g. in memory of someone who has passed away).
(FRANKLIN DISTRICT STAFF):
Each year, Franklin District teachers and administrators have the opportunity to donate a small contribution directly from their paychecks. The contributions are taken post-tax but are tax deductible. And, the benefit of donating through direct payroll deduction is that the money 100% goes to the Foundation. Please consider making this contribution. Even a few dollars a month can go a long way!
SUBMIT A MATCHING GIFT FORM
FROM YOUR EMPLOYER:
Most companies are willing to match employee gifts to non-profits. That allows us to double the impact of your gift. In most cases, all it takes is getting a form to send in with your donation. In some cases, the non-profit has be qualified before your gift is eligible for matching. Please check with your place of business to see if they have a gift-matching program.
DONATE ITEMS TO FOUNDATION EVENTS (IN-KIND):
We hold several events during the year. Our events provide a wonderful opportunity for community awareness for area businesses and organizations. Titled and supporting event sponsorship opportunities are available. Silent Auction donations to these events are also greatly appreciated. Please contact the Foundation for more information. Many of these types of donations can be considered a donation of in-kind items. For more information about tax-deductible in-kind contributions, contact the Foundation office at 414.525.7650.
