Less than two weeks ago, we launched a campaign to help educators rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. The results were astounding.

We’re so excited to announce, we’ve met — and surpassed — our $10,000 matching goal. That means because of you, we’ve raised over $20,000 to donate to educators who need our help. Amazing work, TpT community!

Now, in response to the damage in Florida and beyond, let’s come together again. We’re extending our matching opportunity through September 29th and increasing our match up to a total of $20,000 (means up to $40,000 donated to students and teachers). Together we can make a real difference in so many classrooms.


Team TpT is coming together with our community to help educators rebuild their classrooms and focus on the needs of their students.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. 1. Make a donation to the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund OR to the Hurricane Irma Recovery Fund both hosted by DonorsChoose.org and TpT will make a donation of our own.
  2. 2. To have TpT match your donation, use this form: http://bit.ly/TpTGivesBack to submit your donation receipt on or before September 15th September 29th. TpT will match donations up to a total of $10,000 $20,000 (Receipts may be dated starting from August 25th and extending through September 29th). Let’s make the biggest impact possible for the teachers, classrooms, and students who need our help! #TpTGivesBack



More Ways You Can Make a Difference

This hurricane season has been one of the worst in history. The impact and damage affects millions, including scores of students. TpT Teacher-Authors mobilized quickly to set up fundraisers of their own. (These fundraisers are Teacher-Author run and independent of TpT, so if you have any questions or need support, we recommend reaching out to the Teacher-Authors directly.)
