Funding Opportunities for Teachers is not just a crowdfunding platform.

We have several ways to help teachers get the classroom funding
they need for school supplies.

Why Fundraise

Classroom Supply Grants

We offer classroom supply grants several times each year through our Spotlight Fund Grants Program. Spotlight Fund Grants support STEM, equity, arts education, and more. Grant opportunities and application deadlines are announced via our monthly e-newsletter. Sign up here.

Adoption Matching

Our national network of corporate sponsors and business donors asks us to match them with teachers who fit their criteria, such as location or subject area. Teachers with a classroom profile page may be selected to receive funding through an adoption match. If your classroom is selected, we will notify you via email.

There is no application needed and your page doesn’t even have to be public! Update your classroom profile page monthly for the best chance of being selected.

Setting Goals

Sweepstakes and Giveaways

We partner with our corporate sponsors and vendor partners to run sweepstakes and giveaways for teachers. Prizes often include classroom funding, free school supplies, or other useful classroom goodies. Watch for our monthly e-newsletter or see the latest opportunities on our blog here.


If crowdfunding is permitted at your school, be sure to make your classroom profile page public-facing so donors can find you to make a donation. You will find sharing options for Facebook, Twitter, and email right on your classroom profile page.
