Teachers deserve better supplies, better support, and better treatment. This Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re honoring teachers with a $3,000 classroom giveaway so they can purchase the school supplies they need. 

We’re randomly selecting 10 PreK-12 teachers registered on AdoptAClassroom.org to receive a $300 classroom donation. To be eligible to enter for a chance to receive a $300 donation, teachers must update their classroom page with the hashtag #TeachersDeserveBetter by May 8.

Now is the perfect time to update your classroom page so you’ll be ready for our Teacher Appreciation Week donation match happening on May 2–3. Learn more about our match here.

In order to be eligible for the chance to receive a $300 donation, please follow our step-by-step instructions below.


#TeachersDeserveBetter: How to Enter for a $300 Classroom Donation

To enter for the chance to receive a $300 classroom donation, create or update your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page by May 8, 2022. 

Don’t have a classroom page on AdoptAClassroom.org? Register on AdoptAClassroom.org and create a classroom page to be eligible to receive donations.

Step 1: Add “#TeachersDeserveBetter” to Your Classroom Page

When you login, click “edit classroom page.” Next, add the hashtag “#TeachersDeserveBetter” in the “Why We Need Your Help,” ”About My Classroom,” or “What We Need” section of your classroom page so we know you applied for this donation. 

"A teacher's classroom page. The top text says why we need your help. There is a paragraph that includes the hashtag #TeachersDeserveBetter."

Step 2: Update or Create Your Classroom Page

Update the “Why We Need Your Help,” ”About My Classroom,” and “What We Need” section of your AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page so that it reflects what your classroom currently needs.

Need help with what to update your classroom page with? Read our guide for how to ask for donations on your classroom page here.

Step 3: Set Your Classroom Page to Public

To enter our #TeachersDeserveBetter Giveaway, you must check the “Make My Page Public” box of your classroom page if it is not already public.

On AdoptAClassroom.org, you have the option to make your classroom page private if you’re not going to ask for donations from the public. If you have a private page you can still apply for our grants and spend donations you receive from our sponsors. However, your page must be public to be eligible for this donation.

The benefit of having a public classroom page on AdoptAClassroom.org is that our donors can see your page and make a donation. It’s especially beneficial to you to have a public page during Teacher Appreciation Week as we’re matching donations that donors make to your classroom page.

If you have questions about public vs. private classroom pages on AdoptAClassroom.org, please contact us at [email protected].
