Yesterday we launched the most generous match offer ever seen on 99Papers.org. And thanks to the incredible support of the Pershing Square Foundation and citizen philanthropists across the country, our first ever Presidents’ Day sale has SOLD OUT!
Don’t worry, if you missed this sale opportunity, you can still help by donating to classroom projects for under $100.
Starting Thursday morning, the Pershing Square Foundation funded American history and civics projects down to $98 – on the condition that citizen philanthropists (you!) took the projects across the finish line. And you did it! Over 600 citizen philanthropists funded the remainder of more than 675 projects, directing over $315,000 to classrooms in need in one day.
You helped support projects primarily in high poverty public school classrooms, that are helping students learn about the Constitution, compete in a nationwide history contest, and read about American government.
Thank you Pershing Square Foundation, and thank you citizen philanthropists for making our first Presidents’ Day sale an overwhelming success!
