UPDATE, 8/25 at 7:30AM: Funds for the Gates Foundation match have been fully tapped, thanks to an incredible response from our teacher and donors. Here’s to the #BestSchoolYear!
Great classrooms don’t just happen. This back-to-school season, we’ve teamed up with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to make your support for teachers and students goes even further. For today only, when you give any amount to a classroom project on DonorsChoose.org, the Gates Foundation will match donations, up to $40 per donor. To activate the bonus, use the code “GATES” at checkout.
Teachers need resources to get their classrooms ready for students. For too many dedicated educators, that means dipping into their own pockets. Teachers in the United States spend an average of $500 each year on classroom supplies so their students can learn new skills and facts — and develop a lifelong love of learning. That’s why the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is supporting this back-to-school match, along with so many other education initiatives: Giving great teachers access to great tools is the first step towards giving students a great education.
