Our Goal is to Connect Teachers with the Resources They Need.
AdoptAClassroom.org gives teachers a hand by providing needed classroom materials so that students can succeed.
It is estimated that more than 15 million children don’t have the resources they need to succeed in school and that teachers spend more than $1 billion a year stocking their own classrooms due to a lack of funding in schools. Supporting K-12th grade students, including public, private, and charter school classrooms, AdoptAClassroom.org makes it easy for donors to provide funding and support to classrooms throughout America. Teachers register their classrooms and needs online; donors discover classrooms through simple search tools, and make targeted contributions. As an award-winning 501(c)(3) non-profit, we are able to connect donors with every classroom in the country.
Since we were founded in 1998, AdoptAClassroom.org has connected thousands of donors with approximately 100,000 classrooms. We have raised close to $20 million and estimate that we have improved the learning environment for 3.5 million children with 100% of donations going directly to the classroom.
Many people ask, “If AdoptAClassroom.org passes 100% of donations to the classroom, how does it support its operations?” AdoptAClassroom.org is a national nonprofit that derives earned revenue to offset its costs of administration. As teachers use donated funds to purchase products, affiliate vendors share profits with AdoptAClassroom.org. In addition, AdoptAClassroom.org receives financial support for its operations in the form of unrestricted contributions from foundations, businesses, and individuals.
