Why Teachers Choose AdoptAClassroom.org

  1. 100% free for teachers. We do not take any fees from donations made to teachers.
  2. No specific fundraising goals or timelines. The funds teachers raise are theirs to use immediately, so teachers can order what they need, when they need it. Teachers have up to one year to spend their funds.
  3. Flexible funding. We do not ask for project proposals from teachers when they crowdfund. Teachers can choose how to spend their funds in our marketplace every time they shop. Check out our list of vendors here.
  4. Most teachers are eligible. We serve K-12 teachers in public, private, and charter schools.
  5. Monthly giving. Donors can set up monthly contributions to their favorite teacher(s). This saves everyone time, and helps ensure teachers have funds they can count on.

Why Fundraise

Funding Your Classroom on AdoptAClassroom.org

We know that crowdfunding is not possible for every teacher. We offer
several ways to raise funds for your classroom in addition to crowdfunding,
including classroom supply grants, donor matching, and sweepstakes and giveaways.

Storytelling

What Teachers Are Saying:

“I received donations from people throughout the country who gave me my own voice in what types of products I wanted to bring into my classroom. Without the generous donations on AdoptAClassroom.org,
there is absolutely no way I’d be able to make my
classroom what it is today.”
– Mark, Social Studies Teacher

“Other classroom crowdfunding platforms are not flexible enough. I like that AdoptAClassroom.org doesn’t make you hit a specific goal to use your donations.”
– Krystal, Second Grade Teacher

“It was so helpful to have AdoptAClassroom.org during my first year of teaching. I was able to get the supplies I needed that were not provided by the school, and now that I have them, I won’t need to get those things next year.”
– Korto, Special Education Teacher
