The AEF Adopt A Classroom program makes it easy for businesses and community members to support teachers and students. Thanks to the Adopt A Classroom sponsors who help underwrite the program’s operating costs, we are able to direct 100% of each $500 Adopt A Classroom donation to the teacher or program leader, who uses the funds to support learning opportunities for his or her students.
Teachers use the donations to purchase critical resources and materials, update technology or fund field trips, assemblies or other learning impact programs. Examples include funding an Outdoor Education field trip, building a classroom library, purchasing technology tools or helping a new teacher purchase the supplies needed for her classroom.
Teachers tell us it makes them feel appreciated, valued and helps “make dreams come true.”
The Alameda Education Foundation directs Adopt A Classroom donations to teachers not yet adopted as determined by need, or donors may request a particular teacher or program for adoption.
Donors are invited to join us when we make the adoption presentation to the class. Each classroom receives a certificate naming the donor to display in their classroom. Donors are acknowledged in the local newspaper, including a year end thank you ad. Adopt A Classroom presentations are held in the classrooms monthly with the last presentation in March. All Adopt A Classroom donations received after March 1st will be distributed in September of the following school year.
