Giving students access to basic supplies has always been essential to teach at the top of your game. This year, it’s been harder than ever to deliver engaging instruction — and give students access to the supplies they need.
That’s where we come in.
How It Works
Founded in 2000 by a high school teacher in the Bronx, DonorsChoose is the leading classroom funding site for teachers. Here’s how to request items for this special match day:
- Register on DonorsChoose. (Already a DonorsChoose teacher? Skip to step 2.)
- Request the books and basics you need.
- Cross off “pay out of pocket for the supplies my kids need even though I am already showing up for my students in the toughest circumstances in recent memory” from your to-do list. We’ve got your back.
