In celebration of the this year’s teacher’s appreciation week, crowdfunding portal GoFundMe announced that it is matching the first $100 to any campaign that is dedicated to any educator or classrooms.
The GoFundMe team revealed:
“Teacher Appreciation Week has arrived, and here at GoFundMe we want to celebrate it with a big splash. Educators give so much to our communities, and we’re teaming up with the National PTA to give back. If you start a campaign to benefit a teacher or a classroom this week, GoFundMe will chip in a $100 donation* to help you build momentum.
“Maybe you’re a teacher, dipping into your own pocket to buy school supplies. Maybe you’re a student or a parent of a student whose life has been touched by an inspirational teacher. No matter who you are, you can have a huge impact with a GoFundMe campaign. Let’s #ThankATeacher together and make giving easy and contagious.”
In order to be eligible, the initiative must be created by May 8th 11:59PM PST. Campaigns also need to add #ThankATeacher in the description and raise over $100 from at least five backers by May 13th. 11:59PM PST. GoFundMe’s donations will be added after June 1st.
