DENVER, July 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Ibotta, a leading rewards platform in United States, today announced a $ 100,000 donation to provide school supplies to more than 400 classrooms across the country. Through AdoptAClassroom.org, a national non-profit organization that provides flexible funding to K-12 teachers and schools, Ibotta will provide teachers in need $ 200 so that they can buy the classroom materials they need without spending their own money.
A recent survey from AdoptAClassroom.org found that teachers spent on average $ 750 of their own money last year on school supplies. Another 45% said their spending increased once distance learning started. With more schools returning to this class this fall, teachers will have an even greater responsibility for ensuring the safety and health of their students. Ibotta therefore makes sure that the money does not come out of teachers’ pockets.
“Whether it’s helping teachers provide enough personal protective equipment like masks and hand sanitizer to arm them with basic supplies like pencils and paper, we hope this donation will help. to reduce the personal financial burden on teachers so that they can focus on the best learning experience for students, “mentioned Richard donahue, Marketing Director, Ibotta.
AdoptAClassroom.org provides teachers and school administrators with an online fundraising platform and private e-commerce marketplace of nearly 30 suppliers of school supplies and school specialties. Through its marketplace, teachers and school administrators can use donations to select exactly what they need for their classes and students.

In addition to supporting teachers with the donation, Ibotta is also helping to ease the financial burden on families as the 2021-2022 school year approaches with its “FREE Back to School for All” program.
