Proud to donate up to $750,000 in school supplies

Imagine a world where every child has their basic needs fulfilled and can thrive in the classroom. 

That’s why Kleenex® developed a back-to-school social cause program that helps aid teachers and schools with the financial support needed by partnering with DonorsChoose, an organization focused on supporting classrooms in need and committed to combating racial and socioeconomic inequity in school funding.

Kleenex® is proud to donate up to $750,000 in school supplies each year. To date, Kleenex® has donated over 4 million dollars!

Currently, 94% of teachers are spending money out of their own pocket on classroom resources, at an average of $687 per year.

Kleenex® x DonorsChoose are educating consumers around the important role teachers have in helping students unleash their full potential and thrive, starting in the classroom. As current economic levels of schools continue to decline, teachers are having to increase out-of-pocket spending each year to support basic classroom essentials, including facial tissues, for students to help them grow and thrive.

Facial Tissues are the second most frequent item on back-to-school lists provided by schools.

In most cases (73%), a specific facial tissue brand is not recommended, but when a specific brand is mentioned, Kleenex® appears more than any other brand.

During every back-to-school season, Kleenex teams up with DonorsChoose to donate a portion of every Kleenex® purchase. To date, Kleenex® has donated over 4 million dollars to help support under-funded classrooms in low-income communities because every child should have the chance to thrive.
