Ibotta Adopts 400 Classrooms with $100,000 Donation for Back-to-School Supplies
DENVER, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ibotta, a leading rewards platform in the United States, today announced a $100,000 donation to provide school supplies to more than 400 classrooms across the country. Through AdoptAClassroom.org, a national nonprofit that provides flexible funding for PreK-12 teachers and schools, Ibotta will provide teachers in need with $200 so they can buy the classroom materials they need without spending their own money.
A recent survey from AdoptAClassroom.org found that teachers have spent an average of $750 of their own money this past year on school supplies. Another 45% cited that their spending went up once distance learning began. With more schools returning to this classroom this fall, teachers will have an even greater responsibility to keep their students safe and healthy. So Ibotta is making sure that money doesn't come out of teachers' pockets.
"Whether it's helping teachers provide enough personal protective equipment like masks and hand sanitizer to arming them with basic supplies like pencils and paper, we hope this donation helps reduce the personal financial burden on teachers so they can focus on providng the best learning experience for students," said Richard Donahue, Chief Marketing Officer, Ibotta.
AdoptAClassroom.org provides teachers and school administrators with an online fundraising platform and a private ecommerce marketplace of nearly 30 school supply and school specialty vendors. Through its marketplace, teachers and school administrators can use donations to select exactly what they need for their classrooms and students.
"We are so grateful for Ibotta's generous donation," says Ann Pifer, executive director of AdoptAClassorom.org. "Partnerships such as Ibotta's make our work possible and help us equip more students with the materials and tools they need to learn and succeed in school."
