The 50 for 50 School Gift Project of the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley resulted in $100,000 worth of teaching materials going to local schools.
The foundation provided $50,000 to classrooms through DonorsChoose.org and challenged the community to match the gift. That was done in eight weeks.
On DonorsChoose.org the public can see school projects and donate to them. When money was donated to a school in the Chattahoochee Valley, the Community Foundation matched it.
In eight weeks, 253 classroom projects were fully funded.
