Stephen Colbert Shocks South Carolina Schools By Funding Every Single Teacher-Requested Grant

May 8, 2015

Comedian Stephen Colbert announced Thursday that he would fund every existing grant request South Carolina public school teachers have made on the education crowdfunding website DonorsChoose.org.

Colbert made the announcement on a live video feed Thursday at a surprise event at Alexander Elementary School in Greenville, South Carolina.

Colbert partnered with Share Fair Nation and ScanSource to fund nearly 1,000 projects for more than 800 teachers at over 375 schools, totaling $800,000.

There are certainly a lot of teachers in South Carolina celebrating this week.
