 College Football Playoff National Championship DonorsChoose.org Cards

Thank you to all of the college football fans who have responded to the DonorsChoose.org gift cards distributed at the College Football Playoff National Championship. Thousands of teachers and students have benefited from the remarkable redemption rate that has far exceeded previous years and also exceeded our target funding goal which was met in January. Unfortunately, the DonorsChoose.org cards will no longer be active since the target funding has been met. We do hope that you continue to visit DonorsChoose.org to support a teacher in your community, and please be assured we are looking for a better way to anticipate the redemption rate of the cards distributed in the future to allow participation to all interested the opportunity.
