$20,000 Teacher Appreciation Week Classroom Donation Match

AdoptAClassroom.org is committed to supporting teachers by providing flexible funding they can spend on their classroom needs. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week 2023, we’re matching up to $20,000 in donations to teachers on AdoptAClassroom.org.

On May 9-10, 2023, we’re doubling donations made to PreK-12 classroom pages on AdoptAClassroom.org, up to $100*. Matching begins at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, and ends on Wednesday, May 10, 2023 at 6 p.m. ET or when we hit our goal of matching $20,000.

The match is complete. Thank you to everyone who participated!

If you’re a teacher registered with AdoptAClassroom.org, log in and update your classroom page so that it’s ready to share when the match begins! Not registered with AdoptAClassroom.org? Create a classroom page before we start matching donations. Be sure not to miss out on our #TeachersDeserveMore classroom giveaway too!

Our two-day match ends when we reach our $20,000 matching funds. If you’re a PreK-12 teacher registered with AdoptAClassroom.org, start sharing your page when our match begins. Posting on social media is a great, easy way to inform friends, family, and other supporters about what your classroom needs.
