DonorsChoose.org and G-Team

Even without the office snowman competition in balmy 40 degree weather, this week has been busy. Grouponicus holiday deals featured such national brands as Old Navy and Sony and mustaches ran free with the close of Movember. Chase, DonorsChoose.org, and G-Team also ran a unique one-week-only giving opportunity to help purchase essential classroom supplies. With everyone’s generosity, the G-Team deal sold out before the week came to a close!

DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit website where public school teachers describe specific educational projects for their students, and donors can choose the projects they want to support. This was an especially successful campaign due to the partnership with Chase who gave an additional $40 for every $10 donation. Over the last five years, Chase has gifted more than $180 million to educational programs and nonprofits.

Since its inception in 2000, DonorsChoose.org has provided more than $91 million to help fund everything from books and art supplies to electronics and classroom furniture. Known for its super local impact, this organization was also the first charity featured on our site and now our most successful.

Even though the campaign ended on Groupon’s site, you can still show your support by donating directly on DonorsChoose.org. Also, if you have an organization you would like to see a local G-Team campaign for, tell us about them here: www.groupon.com/G-Team. Thanks for making this G-Team campaign such a success!
