OAKLAND, Calif. — To ease the financial burden of teachers, many of whom spend their own resources on supplies, Clorox is donating $200,000 through a partnership with DonorsChoose.org that will help teachers maintain a clean, healthy classroom, from the first day of school to the first day of summer break. When a clean classroom comes first, good things follow – the best first day of school ever, fewer sick days, and an all-around happier, healthier year.

In the previous two years Clorox has partnered with DonorsChoose.org, projects funded have reached over 120,000 students. This year, Clorox aims to reach even more teachers and students. It’s matching grants during two different time periods: back-to-school season to get teachers started and the new year. In spring when classrooms are low on supplies, Clorox will be funding projects for first time teachers and projects that are looking to start something new for their classrooms, like creating a new reading nook or starting their first science club.

“As a parent, back to school is an emotional time for me,” said Deb Crandall, associate marketing director, The Clorox Company. “Watching your kid learn new things, have new experiences and meet new friends is exciting, and I want my student, and all students, to enjoy these experiences in clean, healthy classrooms, which is why I’m proud Clorox is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to make sure everyone has access to the supplies they need.”

How it works: Teachers post requests for materials and experiences to enhance their classrooms on DonorsChoose.org. Anyone can choose a project to fund and by donating to a project with the Clorox dollar-for-dollar match offer, donors double the impact of their donation. Just visit www.donorschoose.org/clorox.

“A healthy classroom sets the stage for a successful year of learning with richer experiences and fewer distractions,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose.org. “That’s why we’re thankful for Clorox’s ongoing and generous support to help equip teachers and students with the supplies they need to make each school year a great one.”

In addition to the match offers throughout the year, Clorox is continuing its receipt validation program so shoppers across the country can help support schools by purchasing their own family’s back-to-school necessities. For every $5worth of qualifying Clorox and Glad® products purchased*, shoppers save $1, and Clorox will donate $1 to classrooms in need through DonorsChoose.org. Just snap a picture of the receipt and text CLOROX to 30364 or follow the instructions on CloroxForSchools.com to redeem the rewards.
