One scary thought is the fact that many students don’t have access to the resources they need to compete and thrive in a rapidly changing world. Challenged by increasing needs and shrinking budgets, teachers are spending $1 billion from their own pockets each year to buy supplies and learning materials to grow their students’ minds. Even so, many are doing without.
The good news is: you can make a difference. And it’s easy.
Step One: Be inspired. Find an innovative teacher and students whose need and learning idea moves you at www.donorschoose.org/neafoundationmatch. Search by location, subject, age, need, or type of materials to find student learning that inspires you most.
Step Two: Double your impact. We’ll match your donation, doubling your ability to improve public education in America.
Step Three: Pay it forward. Donorschoose.org makes it easy to take credit for your good deed and to encourage others via Facebook or Twitter to give.
Step Four: Congratulate yourself. Your gift is tax deductible and a smart investment in the future. The children you help today will be the problem solvers of tomorrow.
Over the coming weeks, as we enter the giving season, we ask you to help public school educators better equip American students today with the knowledge and skills they’ll need to solve tomorrow’s problems.
And rest easier knowing that you’re making a difference.
