    Citizens for Spokane Schools

    Citizens for Spokane Schools (Yes for Kids) is a volunteer group of supporters for Spokane Public Schools.

    United Way

    Workplace campaigns provide the opportunity for employees in corporations, nonprofits, and local, federal, and state government to come together in support of Spokane County United Way.  Each year, more than 600 local businesses and organizations provide their employees an opportunity to give, with the availability to set aside a gift amount of their choosing from their paycheck.

    SPS participates in an annual pledge drive to benefit the United Way. For additional information about the pledge drive, email Sandra Jarrard, executive director of Communications.
