This campaign builds upon previous campaigns which have raised over $7 million and helped 1.5 million students. It also has another component called The Kia “Holidays on Us” Road Tour. This component will provide nearly $500,000 of flash funding for eligible projects in San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson. On this road tour Kia utilize the all-new 2016 Kia Optima and will stop through a variety of cities for teacher appreciation events and funding workshops.
“Kia and our dealers are dedicated to helping DonorsChoose.org meet its five-year goal and continue making a positive and lasting difference for students and teachers in need,” said Tim Chaney, vice president, marketing communications, KMA. “We encourage people to visit DonorsChoose.org/Kia to learn how they can make a difference for as little as $1.”
“Thanks to Kia for funding classrooms in need around its dealers” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “This latest campaign will help DonorsChoose.org demonstrate how easy it is to raise funds for classroom projects with the help of citizen philanthropists across America.”
