The Northside Education Foundation (NEF) ends its Annual Pledge Drive on Dec.1 with an exciting change for the campaign. Donors can now use their mobile phones to donate using a credit or debit card by texting WIZARDNEF to 41444.
Since 1995, NISD employees have contributed more than $2 million, with all donations used to fund the NEF grants program supporting classroom and department innovations. Donations directly impact students and teachers, and one-third of all dollars raised for NEF comes from the annual Pledge Drive.
Throughout the three week campaign, at least eight gift cards are given to randomly chosen donors each week. This week is the last chance to win a gift card. Campuses still have two opportunities to win cash prizes of $150 for their school and the online pledge form found here is being used again for payroll deduction donations. The form can only be accessed while connected to the NISD network.
Go to NEF's website,nisd.net/nef for more information on how to donate or talk to your campus NEF representative. This year’s pledge drive is sponsored by RBFCU Retirement Program.
