Comedian Makes Generous Financial Donation To Public Schools

South Carolina schools are getting what they have needed for many ears. Every single grant request that South Carolina public teachers have asked for in the past year are about to be funded. Comedian Stephen Colbert has announced that the proceeds from a recent auction that he had will go to meet the financial needs of these teachers.

Mr. Colbert has been able to get the support from two other sources that will meet and even exceed the financial requests according to Madison Street Capital.The projects will aid to get the needed school sources and finance projects that will enhance the learning atmosphere in the state.

As a native of the state Mr. Colbert feels that giving back to the state that helped him reach his success is the best thing that he can do to give back. He appeared at a summit for teachers during teacher appreciation week in the state.

The generous donation was acknowledged in the live feed as well as through a conference feed from the Comedian’s grade school. The donation will go to fund every single one of over 1000 requests on the social fund raising site. More than 800 teachers will garner the benefits of the money donated.

The funds came at the right time to aid the teachers in finishing out their school year, and getting the schedules set for the next academic year. All involved are grateful for the generous donation from their native son.
