T-Mobile is Funding Classroom Materials Nationwide with Million Dollar Donation

By Peyton Phillips August 26, 2021
DonorsChoose lets educators ask or classroom materials they need, and many of these needs are being met thanks to a $1 million donation from T-Mobile.

T-Mobile is continuing its long-standing support of education with a $1 million donation to support teachers through DonorsChoose, a platform that allows educators to ask the public for help purchasing classroom materials. T-Mobile is also on the third year of its #CleartheList campaign, a campaign in which the brand selects a teacher every day for the month of August that uses the hashtag to clear their entire list of supplies needed.

T-Mobile also has its Project 10Million, a $10.7 billion initiative offering free internet and free mobile hotspots across the U.S. in an effort to help close the digital divide that approximately 10 million families face.

“Back to school is special this year. It represents getting back to so much more that we’ve missed after a really trying year for families, teachers and students,” said Jon Freier, EVP of T-Mobile’s Consumer Group. “That’s why T-Mobile is going big here to help everyone stay connected with America’s largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network.”

“This coming school year might be the most important of our generation, and teachers will need all the encouragement we can give them as so many return to classrooms,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose. “T-Mobile’s gift to teachers will help students start the year strong and support them during a time of readjustment.”

For families, teachers and students preparing for the new school year, T-Mobile is now offering “iPhone 12 on Us” — when you switch to and activate the Magenta Max rate plan, no trade required.
