Start a campaign and use #GFMtoSchool
Join 1 million+ who have supported classrooms on GoFundMe.
Back to School season is here! We want to celebrate and send teachers and students back to their classrooms in style.
If you start a campaign to benefit a teacher or a classroom between August 17th and September 16th, GoFundMe will chip in a $50 donation* to help you build momentum.
On top of that, the classroom campaign that raises the most money will win an additional $10,000 for their school!
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. Ask your community to support your classroom or start a campaign for a deserving teacher. Use #GFMtoSchool in your campaign description to qualify, and make giving contagious!
* In order to be eligible to receive a $50 prize from GoFundMe, a campaign must be created by September 16, 2016 11:59 pm PST through this link, use #GFMtoSchool in the description, and raise over $250 comprised of donations from at least five (5) unique online campaign donors by September 16, 2016 11:59 pm PST. GoFundMe will deliver all prizes after Oct 3, 2016, but no later than October 14, 2016. If you are not a teacher, you must select the option to have the funds raised withdrawn by a teacher. In order to be eligible for the $10,000 grand prize, your campaign must be for classroom supplies, equipment, or technology, and must raise more money (from at least 20 unique donors) than all other participating campaigns within the promotional period referenced above. The $10,000 grand prize will be paid directly to the school for which the winning campaign was intended to benefit. Please see the official contest rules here. U.S. participants only.

“We set up a GoFundMe campaign during Teacher Appreciation Week, and it made all the difference in the world to my students. Watching donations pour in from people they didn’t even know was so inspiring, and seeing their faces when we gave them their Summer Baskets is something I’ll never forget.”
Aubrey, 1st Grade Teacher from Boston
