LEE COUNTY, Fla - CenturyLink is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to offer a $100,000 “Double Your Impact” grant to fund classroom projects in public schools.

Any public school teacher within the CenturyLink service areas can go online to DonorsChoose.org to request support for classroom materials and projects.

Project requests can be made up to $500.  CenturyLink’s “Double Your Impact” Grant provides half the cost of a project when the first half is raised through donors. As an example, after donors contribute $250 toward a $500 project, CenturyLink will fund the remaining balance of the project. The company will contribute $100,000 total toward eligible projects.

Teachers should visit www.DonorsChoose.org to submit their project requests. For the best chance to receive funding, project requests should be submitted by September 12, 2011.
