Thank you to everyone who participated. Still want to help? Search for your favorite teacher here or school here.
We’re well past the back-to-school season, which means supplies are running low in classrooms across the country. This leaves educators scrambling to provide what their classrooms need, causing them to spend an average of $740 during the year on school supplies. That’s why we’re helping lighten the load when you adopt a classroom on 12/12/2019.
When you adopt a classroom on 12/12/2019, your donations up to $50* to teacher or school pages will be matched by AdoptAClassroom.org! Matching begins at 10 AM CST on Thursday, 12/12/2019. Don’t wait, because we can only match 100 teachers or schools. Search for your favorite teacher here or school here.
Teacher/Principals: If you share a link to your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom or school page on Twitter on 12/12/2019 during our business hours and tag @Adopt_Classroom, we’ll retweet you! But make sure you post more than just a link to your AdoptAClassroom.org page. Go to the AdoptAClassroom.org Teacher Dashboard to download one of the many fundraising images we provide.

*Matching begins at 10 AM CST on Thursday, 12/12/2019 and ends when we hit our goal of 100 classrooms and/or schools funded. Donors will be notified via email by 6pm CST on 12/13/2019 if their donation earned a match. We will update this page the moment the match runs out. Donations must be processed on 12/12/2019 as part of the first 100 school or teacher donations. Mailed checks and pledges are not eligible for a match.
In case of monthly donations, AdoptAClassroom.org will match the first donation on 12/12/2019 with $50, but not the following monthly gifts.
To help as many students as possible:
- Unique donations will be matched up to a maximum of $50
- If an individual makes 1+ donation(s) to different teachers/schools, all donations will be matched
- If an individual makes 1+ donation(s) to the same teacher/school, only one donation will be matched
- If a teacher/school receives 1+ donation(s) from different donors, all donations will be matched
- If a teacher/school donates to their own page, the donation is not eligible for a match
Teachers/schools will receive the matching donation within a week in their AdoptAClassroom.org page.
