A $5 million alliance between the PNC Foundation and DonorsChoose.org, is entering its second year of providing new resources to Head Start and public pre-K classrooms across the PNC footprint. The effort provides much-needed educational supplies and experiences to help prepare young children for success in school and life. From now through May 31st, PNC will match, dollar-for-dollar, donations that support public pre-K and Head Start teachers’ project requests in the PNC service area listed on DonorsChoose.org, subject to restrictions and a maximum dollar amount. The duration of the match campaign depends on the number of project requests and donations. For specific guidelines on the match offer, visit DonorsChoose.org. One outstanding early education teacher in each of PNC’s markets will be honored as a Teacher Hero for their efforts and involvement in the PNC/DonorsChoose.org alliance. Each Teacher Hero will receive a $2,000 gift card to fund a project in her or his classroom and a second $2,000 gift card to help seed other pre-K projects listed on DonorsChoose.org.
