I’m excited to let you know about a program we launched today #GivingTuesday in partnership with DonorsChoose.org.
 
Duke Energy will provide $175,000 in matching grants for North Carolina teachers to foster literacy and bring engaging science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects to life in their classrooms.
 
Here is how it works: Teachers in your district can submit K-3 literacy and K-12 STEM project proposals (for up to a total project goal of $1,000) to DonorsChoose.org, where the public can provide funding.
 
The Duke Energy Foundation will match all donations made toward these classroom projects at public schools in eligible counties*, up to $500 a project. The project donations will be matched on a first-come, first-served basis until the $175,000 goal is reached. For example, if you donated $50 toward an eligible project, a $50 Duke Energy match will automatically be applied to the project.

Teachers can visit DonorsChoose.org/teachers to submit a project. Qualifying projects already posted to the site will automatically be eligible for Duke Energy’s matching funds on new donations made on or after Nov. 28.
 
Parents and other members of the community can help fund projects by visiting www.DonorsChoose.org and searching for projects by school name, teacher name and/or the "North Carolina STEM and Literacy" match filter. DonorsChoose.org will continually update this page with a list of all projects eligible for the Duke Energy match.
 
You and I both know our children are the future leaders of our communities, and we must support their success. I hope you can share this great news with the teachers, parents and community leaders in your district. If you’re active on social media, consider a post to share this opportunity:
