We’re excited to launch our second annual AdoptAClassroom Week to support teachers at the start of the school year. To celebrate, we have several classroom funding opportunities for PreK-12 teachers nationwide.
Want to help PreK-12 teachers during AdoptAClassroom Week? We have ways for you to get involved!
What is AdoptAClassroom Week?
AdoptAClassroom.org started AdoptAClassroom Week last year to raise awareness for the need to provide classrooms with school supplies during the back-to-school season. We also provide teachers with a variety of classroom funding opportunities, and offer ways for the public to help classrooms start the school year strong.
AdoptAClassroom Week takes place annually during the last full week of August.
While teachers and students need school supplies all year long, stocking a classroom at the beginning of the year comes with an overwhelming price tag. Teachers currently spend an average of $750 out of pocket each year on resources for their students.
Current rates of inflation are causing school supplies to cost more, and 96% of teachers said that inflation is negatively affecting their classroom’s access to school supplies. The need for public support to solve this issue is greater than ever before.
Check out the following AdoptAClassroom Week opportunities:
$10,000 Classroom Donation Match
