2Kia Motors has launched a new giving campaign for September, with the goal of raising $3 million for public schools across the country.

For the 2nd year in a row, Kia will make a matching donation to select projects through DonorsChoose.org, a site that connects would-be donors with needy classrooms.

Kia Continues to Benefit Communities

The campaign will run through all of September Last year’s project raised $2.1 million and benefitted nearly 500,000 students across the country.

The project is intended to empower “citizen philanthropists” to provide direct support to needy schools, making a difference in young students’ lives and futures.

DonorsChooseDonors can select donations based on location, project type, and even donate to class field trips.

When donors find a project that interests them, they can select how much money they would like to donate, giving them complete flexibility and control over their donations.

Kia has a history of working with DonorsChoose.org. In July, Kia partnered with the group to launch a funding campaign. The automaker has participated in a marketing program to raise awareness for DonorsChoose, and made contributions towards the group’s efforts to rebuild Oklahoma classrooms destroyed by tornadoes.

You can join Kia in supporting DealersChoose by visiting their homepage and see what projects are available now. Kia sponsored projects are available here.
