The back-to-school season is well underway — with all of the excitement and energy that comes with it! As students settle into their classrooms, teachers’ plans begin to come into focus. They’re seeing wiggly students who would benefit from a balance ball or wobble stool, planning the books their students are excited to read, and learning who in their class lights up during hands-on science experiments. We’re thrilled to work with school district leaders like you to empower teachers seeking extra resources to help their students thrive.
We’ve also had a busy back-to-school season! Along with our usual work raising support from donors and corporations across the country, we’ve put a renewed focus on listening to you — the district leaders and administrators who make school possible.
To learn more about the unique needs, goals, and challenges of America’s public school administrators, we’ve teamed up with AASA, The Schools Superintendents Association, the professional organization for more than 13,000 educational leaders. We talked to AASA leaders and members, learning about how individual districts can help teachers use DonorsChoose to support district-wide priorities and about the challenges that K–12 crowdfunding poses to administrators.
We’re thrilled to have joined forces on two new resources that we hope will support your district through this school year and beyond.
The Back-to-School Crowdfunding Toolkit for District Leaders
In collaboration with the AASA, we've built a toolkit designed specifically for district leaders as they prepare for the school year ahead. You'll find:
K–12 crowdfunding best practices
A breakdown of the controls and transparency measures baked into DonorsChoose and how to take advantage of them
Case studies of administrators using DonorsChoose to support district priorities
We’re thrilled to work with you to bring your teachers’ classroom dreams to life. If you have any questions about how we can support your district goals and priorities, reach out to email@example.com.
