Whether she’s converting another friend or family member into a DonorsChoose.org supporter or telling a teacher, “DonorsChoose.org can help,” there isn’t much that the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation Executive Director Geales Sands would not do to help improve K-12 public education in Georgetown County, SC. October 31st marked the end of the Georgetown County Challenge, a six-week campaign to fund $50,000 in requests from Georgetown teachers through DonorsChoose.org. The Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation matched every donation made to Georgetown projects during the challenge.
By October 31st, we not only met our goal of channeling $50,000 in resources to Georgetown schools, we also inspired more Georgetown teachers to introduce their classrooms to DonorsChoose.org than ever before. Over the next few weeks, valuable resources will be delivered to classrooms across Georgetown, SC, benefiting thousands of local students.
Like the students and teachers of Georgetown County, SC, we at DonorsChoose.org feel incredibly fortunate to count Geales Sands among our biggest supporters and friends.
