RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - This Tuesday, all donations to support Richmond Public Schools (RPS) campaigns on DonorsChoose will receive a 50 percent match!

The crowdfunding platform enables teachers and school-based staff to raise funds for classroom materials and school-based initiatives.

RPS has already raised more than $1,699,264 and has fully funded a total of 3,503 projects in counting. While over 41 percent of that funding has been received from out-of-state.

Some participating schools include George Washington Carver Elementary, Barack Obama Elementary School and Swansboro Elementary School.

Additionally, select special projects will be matched up to two times.
