CenturyLink offers $100,000 “Double Your Impact” grant
August 9, 2011
CenturyLink and DonorsChoose.org
CenturyLink is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to offer a $100,000 “Double Your Impact” grant to fund classroom projects in public schools in our service areas.
Any public school teacher within the CenturyLink service areas can go online to DonorsChoose.org to request support for classroom materials and projects.
Any project request up to $500 submitted by a teacher at a public school located within a CenturyLink area is eligible. CenturyLink’s “Double Your Impact” Grant provides half the cost of a project when the first half is raised through donors. As an example, after donors contribute $250 toward a $500 project, CenturyLink will fund the remaining balance of the project. The company will contribute $100,000 total toward eligible projects.
Teachers should visit www.DonorsChoose.org to submit their project requests. For the best chance to receive funding, project requests should be submitted by September 12, 2011.
The CenturyLink and DonorsChoose.org partnership is reflective of our Brand and Vision, demonstrating CenturyLink’s commitment to improve the lives of our customers and to support the communities in which we work and live. In addition, supporting K-12 education is one of CenturyLink’s primary philanthropic focus areas.
