Greater Nevada Credit Union donated $1,000 to the Carson City Schools Foundation and iPads as awards in a drawing for those making voluntary payroll deduction donations.
Jeremy Batten, counselor at Carson Middle School, and Kareen Mouradian, fifth-grade teacher at Fremont Elementary School, were the winners of the foundation drawing.
“Greater Nevada Credit Union has been a partner for a few years now, and they have never disappointed in terms of their generosity,” said Casey Gilles, CCSF board member and secretary/treasurer.
Batten and Mouradian’s name were drawn from more than 120 school district employees. The foundation hosted the drawing to reward school district contributors who regularly donate every paycheck through payroll deductions. Funding from payroll donations supports educators and students in the classroom where traditional funding sources might not reach otherwise.
Individuals and organizations also can make donations by check or credit/debit cards. To make a one-time donation or for information, visit www.ccschoolsfoundation.org/how-to-contribute.
Each semester, the foundation gives back to educators and students. In total, CCSF has contributed nearly $40,000 in 2022 and more than $100,000 to students and educators since 2017.
