Today is #GivingTuesday!

Give to any project or teacher today to receive one entry into our #GivingTuesday GIVEaway. See details on the #GivingTuesday GIVEaway here.

A donation for every classroom from August 5-August 10

Mark your calendars: from August 5 to August 10, any public school teacher in America can earn a kickoff donation for their project on DonorsChoose.org.  All your back-to-school wish list items just got a little closer to your classroom!

If you’ve never used DonorsChoose.org before, the first project you ever post can receive a $50 donation from us, and we’ll also share a promo code to double donations to your project for the first 7 days it’s live.  

If you’ve posted any number of projects in the past, you can earn $25 per new teacher you refer to our site when they create their first ever project. It gets better: that teacher will get the special kickoff $50 and 2X promo code if they submit their project between August 5 and August 10!

New teachers, you can get a $50 donation on your first project by following these steps between August 5 and August 10:

  • Create an account at DonorsChoose.org/teachers.  You’ll be guided through steps to add contact, school, and teaching info.
  • Create a project for anything your students need this back-to-school season by shopping at one of our 22 vendors.
  • Submit your project between August 5 and August 10 for our team of teacher volunteers to screen it.
  • We’ll apply a $50 donation to your project within the first 24 hours it’s live.  You’ll also be able to share the RIPPLE promo code with your friends and family, which will match donations to your project for the first 7 days it’s live.
