#ChimeIn for Education

If there’s one cause that hits close to home for all of us, it’s education. More and more, public schools in the U.S. are falling short when it comes to providing basic supplies. Many students in our country today do not have the books they need to develop a love of reading or the equipment needed to keep high school athletics alive.

This month, we’re highlighting DonorsChoose.org, an organization that crowdsources funding for classroom supplies and project. Think Kickstarter meets the PTA.

Through DonorsChoose, public school teachers from all across America create classroom project requests and allow donors to give any amount. You also have the option to tell others why you gave to a specific project and, for an extra tug on your heart, the students will send you handwritten thank you letters. There’s no better way to make a difference directly where it’s needed the most.

Helping a classroom grow and seeing how excited the students are about learning will bring you back to your happiest first days back to school. And, as if you need any more incentive, we’ll give you $5.00 back when you donate $25.00 or more to DonorsChoose.org in September.

Together, we can all help make a difference through an investment that will pay back for years to come.
