The Best Teacher Gift This Holiday Season

This year, teachers are working harder than ever before. You may be wondering what is the best teacher gift you can give?

As a supporter of teachers, you are aware that COVID-19 has made 2020 a difficult year in the classroom. What you might not know as we approach 2021 is that many teachers still don’t have the supplies they need for distance learning. Teachers in the classroom have not been given enough face masks or hand sanitizer to keep learning safe. In our 2020 Teacher Spending Survey, we learned that teachers are spending more of their own money on supplies than previous school years.

Here’s why the best teacher gift is an donation.

  1. It’s fast and transparent. It only takes a few minutes to find and donate to your teacher here. They’ll receive an email right away so they can spend the donation on the items they need. You can select for 100% of your teacher gift donation to go directly to the teacher. When your teacher spends their donation, you’ll get an email of everything they purchased.
  2. Teachers can get what they need most. Teachers receive an credit so they can order the supplies they need over the next 12 months. That means that they can respond to the students in their class with the items they need, when they need it. This meaningful gift allows the teacher to make the decision themselves.
  3. Your gift is tax-deductible. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, any donation made to a teacher on is tax-deductible. Even better, every dollar raises goes towards supporting educators. Our only goal is to help students and teachers in need, not to make massive profits.
  4. You can support your teacher year-round. While a one-time gift is wonderful for the holidays, classroom needs are year round. When you give, you have the option to give monthly. This helps your teacher have access to the supplies they need all year long!
