October 1st deadline: $500,000 in funding for King County Public School Teachers!

Thanks to support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, over 1,000 project requests from King County teachers will be funded on this fall. This means over $500,000 worth of supplies and resources will be delivered to classrooms in your area. All public school teachers in King County who submit requests by October 1st are eligible to be considered for this funding.

Starting the week of October 5th hundreds of gift cards will be distributed through Starbucks locations in King County*. Anyone who receives a card will be able to visit and apply $10 to a local classroom project.  When they do, we want to make sure there are enough projects posted by King County teachers for them to support.

Get Started Now:

  1. Log into your account (or create one at
  2. Submit up to three requests (for $400 in materials each)by October 1st!
  3.  Once your projects are approved, they’ll be available to King County residents with gift cards, and to other donors looking to help.

*Gift cards are limited to one per donor and a maximum of 50 codes can be applied to projects from each teacher. Gift codes are not transferable.
