To help teachers and students start the 2021 school year off with the tools they need, AdoptAClassroom.org is donating 100 $100 school supply donations to teachers at Title 1 schools nationwide. These back-to-school donations for teachers will be awarded to AdoptAClassroom.org registered teachers at PreK-12 public schools, where 40% or more of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
If you’re interested in entering for the chance to receive a $100 donation, follow the step-by-step instructions below on how to enter from August 15th through September 15th, 2021.
How to Enter: $100 Donations for Teachers
To enter for the chance to receive a $100 classroom donation, create or update your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page from August 15th through September 15th, 2021. Be sure to follow each step listed below to be eligible.
Don’t have a classroom page on AdoptAClassroom.org? Register on AdoptAClassroom.org and create a classroom page to be eligible to receive donations on AdoptAClassroom.org.
Step 1: Upload Photos to Your Classroom Page
Upload a high-quality profile photo and cover photo to your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page. If you’re not comfortable using a picture of your face, that’s okay! We’re happy to see your smiling bitmoji, a picture of your classroom, or an image of school supplies.
Step 2: Update or Create Your Classroom Page
Tell a specific and unique story about your classroom, and explain what you need to support your students and why in the “Your Teaching Story” section of your classroom page.
Need help getting started? You could write about how the pandemic or other recent events have affected you and your students, the supplies you’ll need to get learning back on track, or how much money you’ve spent out-of-pocket providing students with back-to-school supplies. You can also tell the story of the struggles and successes of specific students (please keep their names anonymous).
To learn more about how to update the “Your Teaching Story” section of your classroom page, read our guide for navigating our new teacher dashboard here.
Step 3: Include “#SupportTitle1Schools” in Your Classroom Page
While updating your page, include the hashtag “#SupportTitle1Schools” at the end of the “Why We Need Your Help,” “About My Classroom,” or “What We Need” section of your classroom page so we know you applied for this donation.
Step 4: Set Your Classroom Page to Public
To enter for the chance to receive this $100 donation, you must check the “Make My Page Public” box of your classroom page if it is not already public.
On AdoptAClassroom.org, you have the option to make your classroom page private if you’re not going to crowdfund. If you have a private page you can still apply for our grants and spend donations you receive from our sponsors. However, your page must be public to be eligible for this donation.
The benefit of having a public classroom page on AdoptAClassroom.org is that our donors can see your page and make a donation.
