The start of a new school year is an exciting and busy time for teachers. Before the first student steps foot in the classroom, educators are already hard at work creating a welcoming, educational space for their students. This is often done with teachers’ own out-of-pocket money, as 93% of teachers say that their school’s classroom supply budget doesn’t cover their classrooms’ needs.
To help teachers stock their classrooms for the new school year, we’re randomly selecting 40 teachers registered with AdoptAClassroom.org to receive a $100 classroom donation. To be eligible for this giveaway, teachers must update their classroom page with the hashtag #AACBackToSchool2023 by August 30, 2023.
How to Enter: #AACBackToSchool2023 Update Your Classroom Page Giveaway- To enter for the chance to receive a $100 classroom donation, create or log in and update your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page by August 30, 2023.
Don’t have a classroom page? Learn more about why teachers choose AdoptAClassroom.org to fundraise for their classrooms. Then register and create a classroom page to be eligible to receive donations.
Step 1: Add “#AACBackToSchool2023” to Your Classroom Page
When you log in to the AdoptAClassroom.org Teacher Dashboard, click “edit classroom page.” Next, add the hashtag “#AACBackToSchool2023” in the “Why We Need Your Help,” “About My Classroom,” or “What We Need” sections of your classroom page so we know you applied for this donation.
Step 2: Update or Create Your Classroom Page
Update the “Why We Need Your Help,” “About My Classroom,” and “What We Need” sections of your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page so that it reflects what your classroom currently needs.
Need help with updating your classroom page? Read our guide on how to ask for donations on your classroom page.
Step 3: Set Your Classroom Page to Public (Optional)
We encourage teachers to check the “Make My Page Public” box of your classroom page if it is not already public. The benefit of having a public classroom page with 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 (August 21-25) because we’ll be matching donations that donors make to public AdoptAClassroom.org classroom pages, while funds last on August 22. If you have a private page you can still apply for our grants and spend donations you receive from our sponsors.
If you have questions about public vs. private classroom pages with AdoptAClassroom.org, please contact our Teacher Services team at [email protected].
Note: AdoptAClassroom.org meets the crowdfunding best practices put in place by the School Superintendents Association and National School Board Association. Read more on this page for schools and districts.
