    2017-18 United Way Baltimore City Schools Campaign

    Deadline: September 28 Please encourage all staff members to support the United Way Baltimore City Schools Campaign which begins on Monday, October 9. The district’s goal for this year is to raise $250,000, with 100% participation from all City Schools staff.  Employees can contribute to any eligible 501(c)3 charity, including schools and education-related programs. As in the past, staff can opt for paycheck deductions throughout the year to make the process easier for both donors and recipients. All donations have a real and positive impact on the children and families of Baltimore City.
