United Way Campaign Goes Digital

The annual giving campaign kicks off the week of Oct. 2.

The APS United Way Campaign, administered by the APS Education Foundation, is going digital this year, with an online campaign that will reach all district employees through email.

Employees will receive their custom online form through their APS email address when the campaign opens on Oct. 3.  They’ll be able to use a payroll deduction option to designate contributions to the APS Foundation, the United Way, or any 501 (c)(3) nonprofit of their choice. The process is secure and simple and it eliminates the need for paper.

Paper forms will be available for employees who want to give via cash or check. To access a paper form, contact the APS Education Foundation and a form will be delivered via interoffice mail, or download it from the APS Foundation website at

The Foundation placed more than $530,000 into APS schools and classrooms in 2016-17, with some of those funds coming from the annual United Way Campaign. In addition, district employees made a difference for the United Way of Central New Mexico, which backs critical local efforts such as Mission Graduate and the United Way Community Fund. Last year, APS employees contributed over $160,000 to the community, including APS, through the United Way campaign.

The APS Campaign will continue through Nov. 10, and expect to see messages from the Foundation and the United Way about the work they do in our district and community.

For information, contact the Foundation at 505-881-0841.
