Are you registered on DonorsChoose.org? If not, you should be! Organizations are looking for ways to donate to teachers in need, especially as the tax season closes at the end of the year.
If you are an active member, you will be able to submit a request for a Teacher Sponsor Box once you have 6 points.
When you have the 6 points needed to submit a Special Request project, you'll see the option to "Create a Special Request" at the bottom of the vendor list when creating your project.
Special Request projects are a great way to bring your biggest ideas to life! You can request materials from any vendor for a Special Request project. If your project is fully funded, Donors Choose will purchase the item for you. You can choose any online vendor, as long as it is a legitimate business based in the United States.
Please direct Donors Choose to us:
Teacher’s Corner LLC, 6837 State Road 54, New Port Richey, FL 34653
Phone: (727) 312-3217 Email: email@example.com

How to Earn the 6 Points
You earn a point every time:
· Your project is funded and you confirm you still want the materials within 6 days.
· We receive your student thank-yous on or before their due date (if your project doesn't require student thank-yous, you'll receive this point automatically).
How to Create A Project
HI: Pick your project type
On this step, you’ll select the type of project you’re going to create.
· Standard: The most common type of project! Request materials, a class trip, or a visitor for your students.
WHO: Describe your students
Introduce your classroom by explaining what makes your students special. On this step, you’ll also choose the grade level and number of students that will benefit from your project.
WHAT: Select your resources and summarize them for your donors
If you're requesting a class trip or visitor, you can select that option and upload payment documents for the experience.
If you’re requesting materials, explore our vendors by clicking on their icon. When you’re done shopping, checkout on the vendor’s site, and those items will transfer back to your classroom project.
Then, write a quick summary of those items for your donors.
WHY: Explain how this project will change your classroom
Create a title that sums up your project, then tell your donors how your project will make a difference in your classroom and exactly how the resources will be used.
At the bottom, pick up to two subject areas that’ll help donors identify your project.
REVIEW: Make any final edits before submitting your project
On this last step, you can see how your project will appear on the site after it’s approved. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page will show a list of any specific changes that need last minute attention before you submit.
Once you’re all set, submit your project and let our screening team have a look!
While your project is being reviewed, you can get a head start on funding by sharing your special Friends and family Pre-funding link with your network. They can make donations toward your classroom immediately, and our system will automatically apply those donations as soon as your project is approved and live on the public site.
I’m here to help if you need it!
