The Carson City School District, on behalf of the Carson City Schools Foundation (CCSF), has accepted a $1,000 donation from Greater Nevada Credit Union to support student learning.
The foundation also announced Gary Casselman, Discovery Science teacher at Carson High School, as the winner of the foundation’s drawing for payroll deduction donations. GNCU sponsored the drawing and provided an iPad and keyboard as the prize.
Casselman’s name was drawn from the names of more than 100 district employees. The foundation hosted the drawing as a way to reward school district contributors who regularly donate each paycheck through payroll deductions.
District employees can support the CCSF with an ongoing contribution via payroll deduction. Individuals and organizations also can make a one-time donation using a credit card. For more information, visit ccschoolsfoundation.org/campaigns/donations/.
Employees interested in making a payroll donation should obtain a form from their site office manager. Ending the deduction can be done at any time by contacting the Carson City School District Payroll Department. If every district employee contributed just $1 per pay period, the district could raise more than $23,000 per year.
Each semester, the foundation gives back to educators and students alike. For the 2020-21 school year, the foundation awarded five student aid grants, 20 $200 mini-grants and a total of five $2,000 grants for a department and school or grade-level projects.
