2022 Employee One Giving Campaign

Each year, the School District of Palm Beach County holds its Employee One Giving Campaign, a charitable initiative that allows District personnel to support the community by donating to one or more of the four participating non-profit organizations detailed below.

During the 2022 Campaign that ran from February 7 through March 11, more than 2,800 employees participated, raising $157,165 for our charitable partners. Employees' tax-deductible donations will make a meaningful difference in the local community by supporting colleagues, students, and families.

“I know that you already give so much of yourself every day to educate, affirm, and inspire each student. I’m proud to see that you’re willing to dig even deeper to help, by demonstrating kindness and compassion toward others,” said Superintendent Mike Burke in a letter to employees. “Your willingness to give back to the community is an inspiration and a shining example of how the District makes a positive difference in so many ways, in addition to our fundamental work of educating our youth.”
