Teacher Appreciation Week has arrived, and here at GoFundMe we want to celebrate it with a big splash. We are teaming up with the National PTA to give back to the educators who give so much to our communities.

If you start a campaign to benefit a teacher or a classroom this week, GoFundMe will chip in a $100 donation* to help you build momentum.

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. Use #ThankATeacher in your campaign description to qualify, and make giving contagious.
* In order to be eligible to receive a $100 donation from GoFundMe, a campaign must be created by May 8, 2016 11:59 pm PST through this link, use #ThankATeacher in the description, and raise over $100 comprised of donations from at least five (5) unique campaign donors by May 13, 2016 11:59 pm PST. US only. GoFundMe donations will be made after June 1, 2016. If not a teacher yourself, you must select the option to have the money withdrawn by a teacher. Teacher verification documentation must be received by June 24, 2016 11:59 PST. Official rules.
