|Dear Fellow Volusia County Schools Employees,As we strive to provide the best education possible for each of our students, we are not alone. We are joined by our community partners the FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools who are with us every step of the way. Since 1985, the Foundation has consistently raised funds to support the needs of our students and staff in areas not covered by tax dollars. FUTURES has started the Invest in Our Future Payroll Deduction Program. We are asking all employees to consider donating a small portion of their paycheck to FUTURES for programs that benefit all of us! If each of our employees would participate, even $2 per paycheck, it would have a dramatic impact on what the Foundation could do for our school district. All contributions are tax deductible, as allowed by law, and documentation will be provided to each donor. Every contributor will be given a pin acknowledging his/her support and belief in the public schools of Volusia County.
I hope that you will give this program considerable thought. Just think of all the needs that could be fulfilled if we all pulled together! I look forward to you joining me in this partnership with the FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools.Sincerely,
Margaret A. Smith, D.Ed. FUTURES Foundation Projects that support you and the students:
