Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month With A Funded Project

Bring even more joy to your classroom with these easy-to-follow tips and templates for boosting your DonorsChoose project during Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month!


📣 Breaking News: On September 20, donations to projects supporting Latino teachers and students will be doubled (while funds last)! 📣

Joy, history, celebration. All year, we see amazing teachers on our site creating space for their students to know — and take pride in — Latino culture and identity. For Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month, we wanted to help give those classroom projects the boost they deserve, including yours. 

Here are 3 easy-to-follow ways for you to spread the word about your DonorsChoose project (or a project of someone you know) all month long. Pick the sharing option that works best for you!

Option A: I’m a Social Media Sharer

Pick your favorite graphics from our collection and share at least twice on social media before the end of Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month (September 15 through October 15). You can mix & match your favorite platforms (i.e. 1 Facebook post + 1 TikTok), do a morning and evening post on the same platform, or post and re-share your own content (Insta feed + Insta story!). Wherever you tweet, post, snap, or share, make sure you include a link to your project.

Feeling extra excited about these graphics? You can create your own custom graphic using the Canva templates below:

Option B: I’m a Teacher Who Texts (or Emails)

Option B is for those mobile-friendly educators out there. Here’s the plan: Customize, copy, and paste the text below (with your project link!) into a group text chat with 3-5 friends — or in an email to at least 3-5 people. 

Wherever you send it — your starred group chat, that DM thread with your funniest friends, your family email chain — just remember to be yourself, so they know it’s coming personal from their favorite teacher (you!).

Want to celebrate [Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month] with me and my students? I want to give my students [books by Latino/a authors, crayons with diverse skin tones, wiggle chairs] and I’d be so grateful if you would make a small donation to my DonorsChoose project or share the project link with others: [your project link]. Thank you a million times from me and my [28 little Einsteins-in-training]!

Option C: I’m Here for All of the Above (and Beyond!) 

Let’s call option “C” the ultimate option. This is a way to let friends, family and your wider network know about your project in a big way. Complete these three steps together to give your project the momentum it needs:

  1. Send a personalized email to one person who cares about you and your classroom, asking them if they would like to celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month by supporting your project. Include your project link!
  2. Post your project on your favorite social media platform and Include your project link!
  3. Send one group email or text to folks you know, asking them to help you spread the word about your project while there are doubled donations. Include your project link!

Whichever approach you choose, remember your community at home (and our DonorsChoose community here!) want to see you and your students thrive. So go ahead and share your project up along with a heartfelt message or note of thanks — and your classroom will be celebrating in no time.

Pssst! Don’t forget: On September 20, donations to projects supporting Latino teachers and students will be doubled so be sure to re-share your project on that day!
