Calling All Teachers is a partnership between U.S. Cellular and DonorsChoose.org that supports K-12 public school teachers. This program will fund $500,000 worth of classroom project requests in the following states within our retail footprint: Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Targeting our efforts in these communities enables us to make a large-scale, positive impact on education. Click here to learn more.
Our annual campaign is open to K-12 schools of all sizes, public, private, urban and rural across our retail footprint. Schools work to garner votes from community members and those with the most win a share of $500,000. Since 2009, we have contributed $4 million to 56 schools nationwide, positively impacting more than 28,000 students. Click here to learn more.
Along with local schools, we support our company leaders' involvement with nonprofit boards of directors to deepen community relationships. We accomplish this through financial and in-kind donations as well as associate volunteer events. To learn more about our leaders and their community involvement, click here.
U.S. Cellular associates have the biggest hearts in the industry. Through our Associate Matching Program, we match associates' charitable donations to nonprofit organizations dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500 per year, with an annual cap of $250,000. Our associates invest in their communities and so does U.S. Cellular.
We're not just in the business of connecting calls; we're also in the business of connecting people. The passion and energy of our associates are displayed daily as we volunteer at local schools and nonprofits in our communities. If you haven't already, please register your organization with VolunteerMatch.org. Registration for nonprofits is free and will allow your organization to connect with volunteers from a vast online network, which includes U.S. Cellular associates.
