THE STORY:

In celebration of #GivingTuesday this year, Golden Apple is thrilled to announce our participation in a donation-matching event, sponsored by Legacy.com. To support participating charities, Legacy.com is MATCHING every donation up to an event-wide maximum of $50,000. This means your contributions can be doubled TODAY and throughout the month of December!

Golden Apple identifies, develops and supports aspiring teachers through college scholarships, mentorship, and professional development through our Scholar Program, as well as recognizes and celebrates excellent master teachers through our famous Golden Apple Awards. 

Our goal is to expand the size of our teaching Scholars by 25% in 2016 to prepare a record 250 future teachers to make a difference in Illinois classrooms. 

We invite you to join the movement and to help get out the give TODAY.
