This past Teacher Appreciation Week, teachers raised over $1 million on GoFundMe, and we donated $170K to reward their efforts. This back-to-school season, we want to help you raise money for your classroom.
Start a new education campaign by Sept. 16th, and GoFundMe will chip in $50* and put you in the running for a $10,000 classroom prize.
We know you have one of the hardest jobs out there, and you don't always have time to run your own campaign. With GoFundMe, you can always ask a friend, neighbor, or student's parent to start a campaign for you.
Thanks for all you do, this school year and every year!
