Matching Fund Checks:
Every dollar made by an employee is matched & given to the SU/SD at year end to build healthy school worksites.
The intent of this money is to help keep the workplace culture and environment healthy. Therefore the building doesn’t undermine what the individual works so hard to accomplish with respect to wellness.
