The Basics Have Never Been More Vital

Giving students access to basic supplies has always been essential to teach at the top of your game. This year, it’s been harder than ever to deliver engaging instruction — and give students access to the supplies they need. 

That’s where we come in.

On Thursday, October 22nd only, donations to every single teacher request for books or basic supplies will be doubled. These are the two categories of items that teachers request the most on DonorsChoose — and donors love to support them! Whether you need a class set of glue sticks to keep everyone germ-free at school, or have students that could use a small kit of notebooks and pencils at home, this match is for you.

Founded in 2000 by a high school teacher in the Bronx, DonorsChoose is the leading classroom funding site for teachers. Here’s how to request items for this special match day:

DonorsChoose is your one-stop shop — through our site you can request items from over 20 vendors including AmazonBusiness, Best Buy Education, Lakeshore Learning Materials, Teachers Pay Teachers, and Staples advantage. Here are the top items requested by teachers on our site that will automatically qualify for this match.
