Today, we’re teaming up with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to give all donations to live, approved projects a 50% back-to-school boost. For example, the boost will turn $20 into $30, or $50 into $75 — which means every dollar donated today buys more books, pencils, paint brushes, and chalk for every classroom, just in time for the first weeks of school!

Here’s how to activate the back-to-school boost:

  • When a donation of any amount is made today to a live, approved project, The Gates Foundation will automatically boost the donation by 50%.
  • The boost will be available from 7:00 AM EDT today (8/22) until 3:00 AM EDT on 8/23 (tomorrow).
  • The back-to-school boost will be applied automatically, so donors won’t need to enter a promo code.
