NEF kicks off Annual Giving Campaign

The Northside Education Foundation (NEF) has officially kicked off its Annual Giving Campaign (formerly the Annual Pledge Drive). However, some employees got a jump start on the campaign at convocation by pledging more than $3,000.

The three-week campaign, sponsored by RBFCU Retirement Program, helps fund basic materials, robotics, instruments, department programs, and more for Northside employees. Last year, employees raised more than $195,000 and this year’s goal is $215,000. Over the last 24 years, NEF has awarded more than $8 million in grants. The NEF Resource Grant application is open until September 26 and has a maximum award of $750. 

The online payroll deduction form is open and accepting pledges. To make a donation using a credit or debit card using your mobile phone, text UNMASKNEF to 41444.
