GiftATeacher.org - Kids in Need Foundation

Join us in giving!

We’re getting into the holiday spirit of giving and invite you to join us in spreading the feeling! You can help by getting the word out about our year-end #GiftATeacher campaign for GiftATeacher.org to gift teachers the supplies they need. We’ve put together an easy-to-use toolkit with all you need to get the word out to your colleagues, vendors, friends, and family.

Our cause…

School supplies from the start of the year have run out in thousands of high need schools across the country, and teachers won’t have what they need when they return from winter break. Contributions to #GiftATeacher provide essential supplies they need and thousands of teachers in communities near you could use a gift right now.

Join me in supporting #GiftATeacher!

Your help…

If you believe that teachers shouldn’t have to spend their own money to provide essential supplies for their classrooms, shout it out! Rally together and encourage people to make their holiday gifts to a teacher.

Your gift…

$195 provides teachers with TWO large boxes filled with a semester’s worth of essential school supplies. Your GiftATeacher.org donation gives the most critically needed items to the teachers in most critical need across the country.

If we each give a little, it’ll add up quickly and give an incredible gift for the holidays!

$10 provides glue sticks

$15 gives erasers and sharpeners

$20 covers scissors and rulers

$30 for pens and pencils

$55 delivers art supplies

$65 adds paper and assorted writing materials

ALL gifts give teachers what they need for their whole classroom for a whole semester.

Shareable materials…

To keep things easy to share, we wrote several short messages you can use for both personal and corporate communications. Pick and choose whichever of these suits you and don’t be afraid to customize! One of the strongest reasons people give to a cause is because someone close to them recommended it. So copy and paste, and share away!

Personal LinkedIn Post

I’m a proud supporter of the @KidsInNeed Foundation, the national nonprofit dedicated to providing free school supplies where the need is greatest. Will you join me in supporting their campaign to #GiftATeacher?

High need schools across the country are running out of the supplies they received at the start of the year.  Teachers shouldn’t have to use their own money to stay supplied after winter break.

We can help them create safe, positive, and equitable education experiences when we cover the costs of these core learning tools. We can help them head into the holidays knowing when they come back to school in January they will have fresh supplies to finish the year.

Head over to www.GiftATeacher.org where you’ll find teachers, many in your own community, who need basic school supplies. Whether you’re planning year-end gifts to your team or valued client, or stocking stuffers to family and friends, you can #GiftATeacher in their honor and make a gift with lasting impact this holiday season.

I’m a proud supporter of the @KidsInNeed Foundation. It’s the only national charity dedicated to providing free, essential school supplies to teachers with the greatest need. I’d love you to join me in supporting their campaign to #GiftATeacher as part of our holiday charitable giving.

High need schools across the country are running out of the supplies they received at the start of the year, but teachers shouldn’t have to use their own money to stay supplied after winter break.

We can help them head into the holidays knowing when they come back to school in January they will have fresh supplies to finish the year.

Right now, on www.GiftATeacher.org there are thousands of teachers, many in [your own community/or family home town], that are in need of basic school supplies. I’m sure there’s a teacher we could rally behind and if we all contribute, we can easily reach the $195 that provides core supplies they’ll need for their whole class for the whole second semester. Or maybe we could give to all the teachers in [your own community/or family home town]!

If you’re interested in joining me, let’s find a teacher or a whole school we can gift to. If you’re interested but prefer to donate individually, you can go straight to www.GiftATeacher.org/teachers to give.

Much love and joy to you all!

Are you a teacher looking for direct support from Kids In Need Foundation?

Our GiftATeacher.org program was designed for you to showcase your classroom and the impact that free supplies will have on your students, your ability to teach, and the success of everyone involved in the lives of your learners. If you teach in a school where the rate of free and reduced lunch is 70% or higher, you can apply during our annual application period each summer. 

Know a teacher in need of free supplies?

Check out our listings of thousands of teachers on GiftATeacher.org/Teachers! They may already have a page on our site. If you don’t see them there, encourage them to apply to join! If your teacher is not listed, but you would still like to gift them supplies, head over to the Checkout Page and select Add Teacher to purchase two Classroom Supply Boxes and have them sent as a surprise gift.
