Supporting Teachers across Washington
In honor of our 80th anniversary, Inspirus is flash-funding all DonorsChoose.org projects in select cities throughout Washington on randomly selected days. By fully-funding teachers' requests for school supplies across entire cities, we are making an impact on the lives of so many teachers and students.
Look below to see which cities we've already flash-funded and check back to see when new cities are funded. All of this is possible, thanks to Inspirus members.
On October 5th, Inspirus fully-funded all teacher-posted project requests in the Edmond School District on DonorsChoose.org. With the help of our members, we funded 100 percent of the 29 teacher project requests posted, where funds for each project range from $200 to $3,342 for books, tablets, field trips and more. More than 3,400 students benefitted from this $24,500 donation.
On May 26th, Inspirus fully-funded all projects on DonorsChoose.org in Spokane County. We did this in honor of our 80th anniversary: celebrating teachers who give back to the education community, and students who are eager to learn. We appreciate and want to thank the individuals – and communities - who support and inspire students in education.
$30,944 was donated, to support nearly 3,000 students and 34 teachers across Spokane County.
Inspirus pledged more than $73,000 to DonorsChoose.org in 2015. With your help, we were able to fund over 327 projects and help over 19,000 students. This year, we plan to give back even more to schools, teachers, and students!
What is DonorsChoose.org?
DonorsChoose.org is an online crowdfunding site for teachers, to help buy supplies for classrooms in need. We began our partnership with the DonorsChoose.org in October, 2015 to bring as a way to giveback directly to teachers and students by supporting them in getting supplies to classrooms to support students learning and educational development and growth.
