Adopt A Classroom

Adopt a Classroom

The AEF Adopt A ­Classroom program makes it easy for businesses and community members to support teachers and students!

When you adopt a classroom, you directly support a teacher by giving them the valuable funds they need to  support learning opportunities for their classroom.  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 basic supplies needed for her classroom.

Here’s what teachers say about Adopt A Classroom:

Your program is a “God-send” for me. Without the donation, I would have had to drop a fundamental tool that student use and rely on to learn Calculus. I know of no way to improve the process. It is easy and what AEF provides is invaluable to AUSD. – High School Math Teacher

This is my first year teaching in Alameda, this is a great organization which helps teachers get the supplies their students deserve. This help is not typically present in other areas I have taught in. I am glad you exist and would not change anything. – First grade teacher

This is truly an amazing experience. I am thrilled beyond belief. I feel like I am treated as an educational professional when I can choose how to spend the donation as I deem appropriate for my class. That should never change. – Transitional Kindergarten Teacher

As a new teacher, not only was it an incredible emotional boost, but I was also spending a ton of my own money  trying to get my classroom off of the ground. – 2nd grade teacher
