Monday, November 25 –
Friday, December 20, 2019

From November 25 – December 20, Highline Public Schools in partnership with Yes for Highline will be holding their annual employee campaign. Employees can choose to support either or both organizations through payroll deduction or a gift by check, cash, or credit card. 

This represents a change from last year. Yes for Highline has not been an option for employees in the past. However, with a potential bond being put on the ballot in November 2020 to replace Evergreen High School, Tyee High School, and Pacific Middle School, Yes for Highline needs support to make this happen.

Highline Schools Employee Giving Campaign

What is the difference between Highline Schools Foundation and Yes for Highline?

The Highline Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that plays a critical role for Highline Public Schools—we provide our students with the resources they need to succeed in school. From classroom supplies to sports equipment, from field trips to scholarships, the Highline Schools Foundation raises funds to help our communities’ kids with what they need in school. As a 501(c)3 organization, donations to Highline Schools Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Yes for Highline is a bond/levy campaign committee that is critical to the passage of community support of ballot measures. While the district can present information about the election to the community, they can not advocate for a “yes” vote. Yes for Highline is the group that does the community marketing to encourage people to vote “yes”. As a 501(c)4, gifts to Yes for Highline are not tax deductible.

Ambassador Materials

As an Employee Campaign ambassador, you play a vital role in the success of this campaign and we want to make sure you have the materials you need to be successful.

Below you will find links to resources that you can use in your department or school building to help in sharing about the importance of supporting the Foundation and/or Yes for Highline. Staff or Trustees from the Foundation or volunteers from Yes for Highline are willing to attend a staff meeting to discuss why support is important. 

Special Deal: Inspirus Credit Union will donate $25 to Highline Schools Foundation for each donation made by one of its members during this drive. Every district employee that joins Inspirus by 12/20/2019 will receive a $50 starter fund added to their account, courtesy of Inspirus. (Note: this is only on donations to Highline Schools Foundation.)
