Nonprofit crowdfunding website for teachers, AdoptAClassroom.org, is the perfect fit for book publisher
Albany, NY—Independent global publisher ClydeBank Media announced this week they are committing a portion of retail sales across all platforms to AdoptAClassroom.org, the national nonprofit that raises funds for K-12 U.S. teachers.
“It’s a good fit. We publish simplified learning tools, and AdoptAClassroom.org has a great track record of providing assistance to teachers where it’s needed the most,” said ClydeBank Media Director John Donnachie. “We want to give back, and the AdoptAClassroom.org model is aligned with our values. It just makes sense.”
ClydeBank Media publishes simplified learning tools for adult learners, focusing on a variety of topics across the spectrum of business, finance and technology. Blurring the line between traditional learning paths and modern cross-platform learning, ClydeBank Media is an agile publishing startup with a focus on the future. Relying on a dedicated team of writers, researchers, influencers, and professional contributors, ClydeBank Media is an industry leader in the world of on-demand and digital publishing.
AdoptAClassroom.org focuses on helping teachers with the funding necessary to equip their classrooms. According to an AdoptAClassroom.org survey, each year K-12 teachers spend an average of $600 of their own money on classroom supplies so their students have the tools they need to learn and succeed.
More than 90% of teachers purchase classroom supplies out of pocket. Two-thirds of all classroom supplies are paid for by teachers. Through the efforts of AdoptAClassroom.org, nearly 250,000 students from all 50 states have benefitted in 2017. But the need is only growing.
Support for AdoptAClassroom.org is a no-brainer, says Donnachie. “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the dedicated teachers who helped me out along the way. There are teachers and students who need our help. AdoptAClassroom.org puts our contributions into the hands of teachers who will put them to good use. We’re really excited to do our part and to help build a better future.”
