The fall GCPS Foundation Employee Campaign is here and we need you!  Your $10 gift matters and makes a huge difference when we all pull together.  


Every new donation of $10 or more (or payroll increase in any amount) to the GCPS Foundation general fund or to a specific fund (your cluster or favorite scholarship) now through 

Oct. 31 will qualify you for a chance to win $100.  Every increment of 10 adds another chance to win.  A record 23 employees won $100 last year!   


The top 3 schools with the largest number of total donors (new and returning) by Oct. 31, 2012 will win $500.   


It is easy to play. For payroll donations, donate online through the go.gwinnett.k12.ga.us portal e-self-service option (far right tab). This can be a single donation or give your donation over several months time.
