My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for AdoptAClassroom.org, Minneapolis, MN, USA
I have donated to several classrooms through Adopt-A-Classroom over the past three years. In each case the teacher communicated with me to show gratitude. In the case of one teacher I know, she had all of her 1st grade students pose for a photo holding some of the materials my donation had allowed them to receive. She waited for my next visit to give me a copy and share what my donation truly meant to her and her students. I was in tears! My donated funds have also allowed two classrooms to order the Scholastic Weekly Reader - one copy for each student every week for the entire school year!
Looking at the financial data for Adopt-A-Classroom and conversing with the teachers made it clear that 100% of my donation was made available to and was used by the teachers.
One year I did not receive thank-you communications from the teachers. I contacted Adopt-A-Classroom. They investigated and it turned out that I had somehow checked a box that I did not want to receive communications from the organization. They fixed it for me quickly.
And my donations are tax-deductible because they are a 501(c)(3) organization.
