How did you first hear about DonorsChoose.org? Sometimes it’s through a friend, family member, social media post, or news story. More often than not though, teachers hear about DonorsChoose.org through a colleague who has used it to get what they need for their students.
Here are four ways to share your DonorsChoose.org expertise:
- Just mention it. Nothing beats an old-school, in-person interaction with a colleague. If you want to give them some information to look over later, you can print and share this outreach flier.
- Social media & email. This week, there are three key links you can share on social media and in any emails you’d like to send. First, there’s the teacher sign-up page. Then, there’s the blog post containing the full Welcome Week lowdown. Third, this recent Facebook Live Event details how to submit a successful first project. And that fourth link? Your own DonorsChoose.org teacher page of course! Your classroom projects are the heartbeat of the site.
- Run a training. Teachers across the country are running DonorsChoose.org trainings this week. Here’s the slide deck you can use if you’re so inclined. It provides an overview of our organization and a step-by-step look at project submission. Feel free to edit and make it your own.
- Share your story: Take a moment this week to share your DonorsChoose.org story on social media. Tell your community about the resources you’ve received and the impact they had on your classroom. Share a photo… or two!
