Happy Back-to-School Season from GoFundMe

$50 for You. $10k for Your School. 

As children head back into classrooms, another back-to-school tradition begins again: Teachers reaching into their own wallets to pay for basic educational supplies. This year, though, GoFundMe is doing something to help resource-strapped educators who want the best for their students. Until September 16, any GoFundMe campaign started for or by a K–12 teacher or educator that raises $250 or more will receive a $50 donation from GoFundMe. In addition, the campaign that raises the most money during that time will receive a $10,000 donation to the teacher’s school. Campaigns must include the #GFMtoSchool hashtag to qualify.

Deadline: September 16, 2016
