$15,000 Donation Match: Teacher Appreciation Day

MATCH UPDATE: The donation match is over. Thank you to everyone who participated!

The COVID-19 pandemic has constantly changed teachers’ lesson plans, teaching strategies, and school supply needs. After the year teachers have had, they need support more than ever before. That’s why AdoptAClassroom.org and CouponCause are helping the public show teachers love with a $15,000 donation match during Teacher Appreciation Week.

On Teacher Appreciation Day (5/4/21), AdoptAClassroom.org and CouponCause are teaming up to double donations made to PreK-12 classrooms and school fundraising pages, up to $50*. Matching begins at 7 AM CDT on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, and ends at 5pm CDT on May 5, 2021.

Don’t wait to start sharing your page, because we can only match 300 donations to teachers or schools registered on AdoptAClassroom.org during our two-day match. Not registered on AdoptAClassroom.org? Create a fundraising page before we start matching donations.

Guidelines to Qualify for Our Teacher Appreciation Day Match

*Matching begins at 7 AM CDT on Tuesday, 5/4/2021 and ends on 5pm CDT on Wednesday 5/5/2021 or when we hit our goal of 300 classrooms and/or schools funded. Donors will be notified via email by 6pm CDT on 5/6/2021 if their donation earned a match. We will update this page the moment the match runs out.

Donations must be processed on 5/4 – 5/5 as part of the first 300 school or teacher donations. Mailed checks and pledges are not eligible for a match. Matching donations will be disbursed within a week to your AdoptAClassroom.org account.

In case of monthly donations, AdoptAClassroom.org will match the first donation on 5/4/2021 – 5/5/2021 with $50, but not the following monthly gifts.

To support as many classrooms 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
  • If a donation is made on any website other than AdoptAClassroom.org, the donation is not eligible for a match
