About ISD 279 Employee Giving

The United Way and District 279 Foundation Employee Giving Campaign has begun! Osseo Area Schools has a history of being one of the highest performing school districts among all districts in the Greater Twin Cities United Way service area. Last year Osseo Area Schools employees raised more than $56,000, almost evenly distributed (per donor choice) between District 279 Foundation and the United Way. Let’s continue the spirit of giving that is prevalent in our school district community.

From October 1 through October 10, you have an opportunity to voluntarily make a fully tax-deductible donation to District 279 Foundation and/or Greater Twin Cities United Way. Both of these organizations serve children and families who live in the communities served by our school district. There is also an option to designate a non-profit of your choosing.
