FREDERIQUE CONSTANT PROUDLY CONTINUES SUPPORT FOR EDUCATORS NATIONWIDE ON WORLD TEACHERS' DAY
October 5, 2021 (New York, NY) – In recognition of the tumultuous year teachers have in front of them, Frederique Constant is exceedingly proud to offer their continued support to the education nonprofit, DonorsChoose in honor of World Teachers’ Day.
To date, the watch manufacturer has donated over $200,000 to DonorsChoose since the partnership began in 2016, with no plan of slowing down. Beginning October 5th, Frederique Constant is offering gift cards up to $1,000 per purchase through select retail partners for DonorsChoose recipients in an effort to aid classroom projects.
With students and teachers adjusting back to classroom settings, Frederique Constant believes that supporting school systems is one of the most important initiatives today nationwide. Working to fulfill the needs for updated technology in the classroom, basic learning supplies, and personal protective equipment, moves us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.
DonorsChoose empowers public school teachers to request much needed donations for projects, programs or resources that are not included in their regular budget. Founded in 2000 by a Bronx high school teacher named Charles Best, the nonprofit organization has since supported over 2 million classroom project requests ranging from butterfly cocoons to robotic kits, new books for classrooms, and much more.
Carla Wilke, Chief Marketing Officer of Citizen Watch America, shared:
“Frederique Constant is proud to show our appreciation to the dedicated teachers who receive support from DonorsChoose. It has been exciting to witness all the good the organization has done over the past five years of our partnership, and we are excited to continue to contribute to their growth.”
Charles Best, Founder and CEO of DonorsChoose, said:
“We so appreciate Frederique Constant’s dedication to our mission and their continued support. Our partners like Frederique Constant help teachers provide the best learning environments for their students, at a time when that support is especially needed.”
