“Teachers, nurses and physicians are an essential part of our communities and we believe it’s crucial to recognize the great importance of these individuals during these challenging times,” said David Christopher, executive vice president and general manager – AT&T Mobility. “We’re happy to support those who give back so much by offering them and their families significant savings on these unlimited wireless plans.”

In addition, we continue to launch our AT&T 5G network. We’re happy to be able to do this for our customers and communities across the country. AT&T 5G is now available in 355 markets across the country, covering 179 million people with plans to be nationwide this summer.
Giving Back to Teachers
To further support education initiatives across the country, AT&T is contributing more than $1 million to teacher-focused organizations as they gear up for back to school.
Contributions will support:
- Teach For America’s high-caliber leadership and diversity, equity and inclusion training to their corps members and alumni
- Breakthrough Collaborative’s work to place 1,100 Teaching Fellows into summer internship roles that will empower them in the virtual classroom
- ISTE’s Summer Learning Academy, which is helping K-12 educators prepare to return to a school system faced with a dramatic shift towards distance and blended learning
- Alliance for Excellent Education’s expansion of its Instructional Coaches Leadership Program, supporting emergency needs, continuity of learning plans and more for educators across the country.
“Teachers play a fundamental role in shaping the lives of their students, often going beyond their role as educator to serve as counselor, mentor and caretaker,” said Charlene Lake, SVP, corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer, AT&T. “The investment teachers make in their students is unparalleled, which is why we’re thrilled to be collaborating with organizations providing teachers the tools and resources they need to continue this important work.”
Financial support for teachers is made possible in part through AT&T’s Distance Learning & Family Connections fund. The fund was created in response to COVID-19 to give parents, students and teachers tools for at-home learning.
