Some of the Ways You Can Activate Your Sponsorship
Integrated Marketing Campaign
We leverage our marketing channels (website, email, educator newsletters, social media, blog) to amplify your brand and campaign messaging. We’ll provide you with a customized marketing communications plan that aligns with your campaign design and messaging.
National Reach, Local Activation
We can match your business with teachers and schools in any community throughout the U.S. Whether you want to support education in a single market, or in hundreds of cities where you operate, we geo-target your campaign.
Once your campaign ends, we’ll provide you with a final report that includes both quantitative and qualitative impact. In addition, we’ll provide you with compelling, creative content from our educators you can use in your own internal and external marketing.
Connect to Your Specific Areas of Interest
We can shape your giving program to serve your philanthropic focus or align more closely with your core business. We can geo-target locally, regionally or nationally.
These include, but aren’t limited to the following special interests and curriculum:
- High-Needs Classrooms or Schools
- The Arts
- Special Education
- LGBTQ Inclusion
- Racial Equity
- Social-Emotional Wellness and Mental Health
- Disaster Relief
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
Support your company’s DEI goals by making an investment in our nation’s schools and students. We can target your gift with proven strategies and resources that improve racial equity and inclusion for teachers and students.
We can provide you with metrics and stories from the schools and/or classrooms to use for enhancing and promoting your DEI efforts.
Example: 2022 Sponsor Campaign That Supported Students of Color
More than 50% of the students supported by sponsor are students of color.
50% of sponsor-adopted schools are comprised of 55% or more students of color.
25% of sponsor-adopted schools are comprised of 80% or more students of color.
Credibility, Efficiency, and Transparency
Your cause-marketing campaign needs a reputable 501(c)(3) nonprofit partner you can trust. Founded in 1998, we have been building credibility, efficiency, and transparency into every aspect of our mission and operation for more than 25 years.
AdoptAClassroom.org® holds the highest rating from Charity Navigator for operational excellence and from GuideStar/Candid for transparency.
Our technology platform allows us to operate very efficiently so most of our donations are directed to programs that support our mission, not administration costs. See our current financials and Annual Report here.
We track how every dollar donated is spent to ensure accountable spending of funds by teachers. We can provide you with summarized or complete reporting.
