Easy Money for Classroom Supplies

 

Using DonorsChoose.org I was able to get about $2,500 in supplies for my classroom without spending my own money or begging my friends for help.


I know teachers spend a lot of their own money on classroom supplies and materials but there’s a website called DonorsChoose.org that can help. There you create a project with the supplies you need.  After getting your project approved they create a post for you to share on social media soliciting donations.  Along with using social media they provide match offers. Match offers are how I often earn money for my project quickly.  The last few years Google has done a match offer that includes teaching the students about coding or being respectful.  When your students complete the offer then you receive a gift card to use towards your project.  Watch for match days and boost your project when those occur and post your project to social media again letting your friends, family, and followers know that their donation is matched during this window.  Finally, refer people to earn $25 each time they create a project.  Here is my referral link if you decide to sign up and create a project yourself.  Need help navigating the process? I’ve created a short video below.
