The nation’s most vulnerable students also face the greatest obstacles to learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools begin to re-open, here’s how we’re innovating to serve teachers’ needs wherever learning is happening.
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve made it easier and safer for our donors and partners to support teachers.
We’ve added additional security tools to help verify teachers and notify administrators when projects are funded, so our donors have peace of mind when they give to a project.
Our Global Inventory Hub helps teachers stay in the know about what popular items are in short supply worldwide, and our team is ready to help teachers find alternate supplies if needed.
We’ve made it easier for teachers to share thanks with donors at a time when it’s often impossible to send handwritten notes from students.
