December 3, 2012
I donated to four different classrooms but none of the classrooms spent the funds I donated. I contacted Adopt a Classroom several times and was basically told to wait it out and eventually they would be used. I also only received communication from 2 of the 4 teachers that I donated to. This charity claims that what separates it from other classroom charities is the relationship between the donor and classroom - they aim to make it long term so that classrooms get adopted year after year by the same sponsor. There's no communication and no accountability. I decided to give this charity a chance after spending 5 years donating to DonorsChoose (which is much better run). I'll stick with DonorsChoose. I hate seeing my donated money trapped in limbo not being used.
