$5,000 Back-to-School Classroom Giveaway

This giveaway has concluded. Visit our Teacher Funding Opportunities page to learn more about current and upcoming educator funding opportunities from AdoptAClassroom.org.

To celebrate AdoptAClassroom Week, we’re randomly selecting 20 PreK-12 teachers registered on AdoptAClassroom.org to receive a $250 classroom donation to purchase school supplies.

To be eligible for a chance to receive a $250 donation, teachers must create or edit their AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page with the hashtag “#BackToSchool2022” by August 31, 2022.

Now is a great time to create or edit your classroom page so you’ll be prepared for other funding opportunities during AdoptAClassroom Week. AdoptAClassroom Week is one of the ways we equip educators with the resources they need heading into the new school year. 

Find more information about our classroom funding opportunities here, including our upcoming donation match.

To enter for the chance to receive a $250 donation, follow our step-by-step instructions below.

Step 1: Create or Log in to Your AdoptAClassroom.org Account

Register on AdoptAClassroom.org and create your classroom page, or log in to your existing page.

Step 2: Add “#BackToSchool2022” to Your Classroom Page

When you log in to your AdoptAClassroom.org page, click “edit classroom page.” 

Next, add the hashtag “#BackToSchool2022” in 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. 

Example Entry:

While you’re logged in, make sure to edit the “Why We Need Your Help,” ”About My Classroom,” and “What We Need” section of your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page so that it reflects what your classroom currently needs this school year.

Step 3: Set Your Classroom Page to Public

To be eligible for this giveaway, 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 use it 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. It’s especially beneficial to you to have a public page during AdoptAClassroom Week because we’ll be matching donations that donors make to your classroom page.

If you have questions about public vs. private classroom pages on AdoptAClassroom.org, please contact us at [email protected].


What is AdoptAClassroom Week?

AdoptAClassroom Week is an annual recognition of teachers during the last full week of August to highlight the need to fund classrooms during the back-to-school season.

We launched AdoptAClassroom Week in 2021 after our 2021 Teacher Spending Survey found that teacher spending on school supplies to do their job reached an all-time high of $750 a year.

We’re celebrating AdoptAClassroom Week with a variety of classroom funding opportunities for PreK-12 teachers nationwide. We encourage the public to join us on August 22–26, 2022 to support teachers, who do one of the most important jobs that exist.
