Donate through SchoolPay for PSD COVID-19 support efforts
Proceeds from the following PSD fundraisers are donated directly to PSD, a tax-exempt governmental organization.
Please consider donating what you can to back PSD efforts to support students and families while schools are closed. Donations are accepted through SchoolPay. Transaction fees are waived for donations.
Donations go to these PSD efforts:
- Nutritious meals for kids during school closures: Donations help PSD provide free meals to students at designated meal sites. PSD families with SchoolPay accounts can transfer their current student account balance. Please email email@example.com to donate your balance.
- Student internet connectivity - Support goes toward providing internet access for remote learning to students who do not have it. Learn about PSD, community and service provider efforts on the Internet Access web page.
- PSD emergency family support - Funds go toward making a difference for students and families experiencing homelessness or who have been identified as having high needs.
