Update: The donation match has been completed. Thank you to everyone who participated in the match event.
This back-to-school season, teachers need our support more than ever. Many educators are returning to the classroom full-time for the first time since March 2020. They need help replenishing supplies that went home with students during distance learning and new PPE and cleaning materials on top of their yearly supply demands. To help the public meet this need, we’re launching our first-ever AdoptAClassroom Week.
To kick off AdoptAClassroom Week, we’re doubling donations made to PreK-12 classroom and school pages on AdoptAClassroom.org, up to $50*. Matching begins at 7am CT on Monday, August 23, 2021, and ends on August 24, 2021 at 5pm CT.
Don’t wait to start sharing your page, because we can only match 200 donations to teachers or schools registered on AdoptAClassroom.org during our two-day match. Not registered on AdoptAClassroom.org? Create a classroom page before we start matching donations.
Guidelines to Qualify for Our AdoptAClassroom Week Match
*Matching begins at 7am CT on Monday, 8/23/2021 and ends on 5pm CT on Wednesday 8/24/2021 or when we hit our goal of 200 classrooms and/or schools funded. Donors will be notified via email by 6pm CT on 8/24/2021 if their donation earned a match. We will update this blog page the moment the match runs out.
Donations must be processed on 8/23 – 8/24 as part of the first 200 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.
