May 2, 2017—The Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) treated staff members at Bane Elementary School to a free lunch for being the top participant in the CFEF Donate to Educate program in 2016-2017.
Through Donate to Educate, CFISD employees give—either through payroll deduction or direct deposits—to the CFEF to generate money for student scholarships. Employees raised nearly $150,000 for scholarships in the program in 2015-2016.
The CFEF partnered with school principals to further incentivize the program through “CFEF Superhero Mondays,” when teachers can wear a CFEF-provided t-shirt and jeans the first Monday of each month if they donate $100 or more annually.
CFEF representatives serve lunch to a Bane staff member on May 1 following the school’s top participation year in the Donate to Educate program.
It marked the second consecutive year for Bane to win the Donate to Educate participation contest. CFEF representatives arrived at the campus on May 1 with lunch donated by Texas Roadhouse for the entire staff.
“Bane teachers truly have a heart for kids of all ages as exemplified by the generosity and participation in Donate to Educate,” said Dr. Carrie Marz, Bane principal. “This is the second year in a row we have been recognized as a leader in giving. It is a blessing to work with such a giving community of educators and I am proud to be their leader.”
