How do we use your contributions?

  • Financial contributions are used for warehouse and operational costs.
  • Supply donations are given to students in need through partnerships with schools. Surplus donations are offered to teachers at a significant discount.

Our warehouse and teacher supply store is staffed by volunteers.


Individual contributions

Your contribution matters! Here’s how your financial donation benefits schools and students:

  • $25 = backpack of supplies for one child
  • $50 = backpack of supplies for two children
  • $100 = binders, pens and paper for an entire classrooms
  • $500 = tables and chairs for a school computer lab


Become a sponsor

If you’re making a financial donation, you may also consider becoming a monthly sponsor. Monthly sponsorships are $7500 and cover our rent, utilities and other operating expenses for one month.

With your contribution, your organization will receive:

  • Listing as the Sponsor of the Month (for the designated month) on all donation lists, in Companies to Classrooms publications, and on this website.
  • In-store recognition as sponsor of the month—company can provide banners etc. to display in our store.
  • Active role within the store during your designated month. Employees can volunteer to meet and help teachers during shopping hours.
  • Provide special giveaway promotional items or literature to be distributed at check-out to teachers.


Highlighted sponsor:

Thank you to Otto Bremer Foundation who provided a $4,100 grant in March 2012 to support our Strategic Planning process. The Board and many volunteers have worked hard on this important task. View our Strategic Plan Summary here.
