I just wanted to write a brief note about an organization that I just registered with: Adopt-A-Classroom. It’s a nonprofit organization that allows both private donors and groups to contribute money to classrooms for needs that take a bit of financing. This is an awesome way for any teacher to raise that funding needed for field trip dues that your students can’t meet, a multicultural classroom library, a Smartboard, or anything else you can dream up. Donations are tax-deductible for the donors, and endlessly appreciated by teachers and students. You can pick a specific teacher to donate to (say, me, for instance… ha ha!), or just make a general, anonymous contribution. It’s a very direct way to see the results of your charity–teachers and students give feedback straight to you on how the funds have been spent!
If you’re a teacher, sign up now. If you’re a kind soul who wants to help schools, teachers, and kids, please consider donating either online or by mail. You can do this and learn much more at their website. Click the link below to get started:
