Thanks to a MATCHING FUND  from the TVW Board of Directors, donations to Celebrating Civics  will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Civics education has never been more important. Ensuring our students understand how Washington state government works and training them in respectful civil discourse will empower them to voice their opinions and make sure their voices are heard.

Funds raised during this event will help Teach with TVW expand its innovative civics education programs to empower the next generation of engaged citizens.

DONATE NOW and support civics education!

  • $5,000 Provides Support such as Program Expansion
  • $1,000 Provides Support such as Classroom Technology
  • $500 Provides Support such as Curriculum Development
  • $250 Provides Support such as Volunteer Recruitment

Your gift at any level makes a big difference and will be doubled tonight.

 Our goal is to raise the annual Teach With TVW budget $100,000 during this campaign!

Thanks to our event sponsor!
