The PNC Foundation and DonorsChoose have joined together to help preschool teachers obtain more classroom resources through DonorsChoose education funding platform.
PNC and DonorsChoose, an online charity that connects individual donors with classrooms in need, have teamed up to help teachers obtain quality resources and experiences for students in public pre-K, public charter and Head Start classrooms across the country.
On April 4, 2019, all 50,000+ PNC employees received a $25 electronic gift code for DonorsChoose. The PNC Foundation funded these gift cards as part of a new $5 million initiative with DonorsChoose to help teachers obtain the resources and experiences they need to inspire their students’ love of learning. PNC’s alliance with DonorsChoose launched in 2017 with an initial $5 million grant, and we’re excited to continue our work together.
Our work with DonorsChoose reflects our commitment to helping children get a strong start in life. This program will directly improve pre-K teachers’ ability to help more students reach their full potential and, through their successes, will strengthen the communities we serve.
