Flash Fund Event: Ibotta’s Back to School Free-for-All Campaign Surprises 400 Classrooms Across the Country Published on July 14, 2021 by Devon Karbowski
Since March 2020, teachers and their students have been adapting to new ways of teaching and learning. To set them up for
success as they head back to school, our friends at Ibotta are donating more than $100,000 to AdoptAClassroom.org to support classrooms across the U.S. Ibotta, the cash back rewards platform, kicks o their Back to School Free-for-All campaign by ash funding 400 classrooms.
Their surprise donation to teachers will help equip 10,000 students at high-needs schools with the tools and materials they need
to start the school year off strong. Many children come from families who simply cannot afford to send them to school with the supplies they need to learn and
succeed. Teachers are filling the gap by purchasing classroom supplies using their own money. Ibotta’s donation will reduce some
of this financial burden for both teachers and families that cannot afford all of the classroom supplies their children need. Kudos
to Ibotta for acknowledging the need and surprising teachers in such a meaningful way.
These are just a few of the teachers who will be celebrating the new school year with a lot more freedom thanks to Ibotta’s
“With many of my students participating in remote learning and in-person learning last school year, there were few opportunities
to celebrate our learning and creativity all together. This donation from Ibotta will help us to start our year all together as a team of
creative artists! We can now purchase glue, scissors, textured collage papers, and paint to make our biggest and most inclusive masterpiece yet!”
