We know that teachers wear many hats and consistently go above and beyond for their students. They’re often the front-line social workers in schools, and regularly assist their students with critical life needs, like warm coats, clean clothes, personal hygiene items that would otherwise have been provided at home. Salesforce.org is matching donations to projects that provide these resources to students to help kids in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, New York City, Oakland, or San Francisco come to school healthy and ready to learn.
Here’s how to qualify:
- Your school is located in Atlanta, Boston Public School District, Chicago, Indianapolis, New York City (any of the 5 boroughs), Oakland, or San Francisco.
- Enter the campaign code NURTURE when you start your project.
- Request resources like hygiene products or clothing that your students are not receiving at home. You can also request medical supplies for specific students.
- Keep your total project goal under $1,200, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org.
- Select Warmth, Care & Hunger as your subject.
If your project meets the criteria above, you should see the match offer applied to your project as soon as it’s approved and live on the site (however, it won’t appear during Friends and Family Pre-funding). New donations will be matched one-to-one as long as funding remains.
