Teaching right now is so many things: hard, amazing, rewarding, frustrating, joyful. Last week, supporters flocked to DonorsChoose to appreciate teachers — and make a tangible difference in their classrooms.  

DonorsChoose was founded by a history teacher in the Bronx in 2000. With a four-star rating on Charity Navigator (their highest) and unrivaled impact in public schools across the country, we’re the best spot to lend a hand and invest in our country’s teachers and students. So for our community, Teacher Appreciation Week is like every holiday rolled into one.

This year, 63,000 donors and 10 corporate and foundation partners celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week on DonorsChoose. Together, they gave over $8.5 million to classrooms in just 5 days. This made for the biggest Teacher Appreciation Week in DonorsChoose history. More than 64,000 teachers across the country received support, and more than 14,000 projects were fully-funded — with many more well on their way. You can bring a teacher across the finish line here.

Want to see how the week unfolded day-by-day? You’ll find the details below.
