Our teachers are working each day to create a positive and creative learning environment.
As a community, we can be a part of that effort in a variety of ways. One way is to support teachers by making donations directly to their classrooms. Many teachers find themselves spending money out of their own pockets to make learning opportunities happen that are not funded by traditional funding streams.
When you donate to a teacher, the funding comes through us and goes directly to that teacher. And because we are a nonprofit organization, you are eligible to earn a tax deduction for the donation.
