Making a difference in our communities

For the fourth year in a row, we’ve proudly donated $1 million in support of local public school classrooms in our communities though our partner DonorsChoose.

Celebrating National Teacher Appreciation Week

This Teacher Appreciation Week, we're excited to commit $75k to support STEM projects in schools throughout St. Joseph, MO and West Orange and Monclair, NJ. These local investments are just one way we can help grow the next generation of leaders and teachers who will transform the ways we connect.

Why DonorsChoose?

At Optimum, we believe strongly in keeping our communities connected. Through our partnership with DonorsChoose, we can support the communities we serve by funding classroom projects in local schools across Optimum’s 21-state footprint throughout the 2023–2024 school year. We are excited to provide students and teachers with the tools they need to stay connected, so they can reach their educational goals and pursue a lifetime of achievement.

This funding will help us with our KINDNESS PROJECT goals of being mindful and doing good. These supplies will allow us to continue our successful actions.
