In the U.S. nearly 11 million children live in poverty. That’s 1 in 7 students. More than half of teachers in the U.S. earn income from sources other than their base teaching salary. This is where nonprofits can make a difference for teachers and students.
Adopt A Classroom
96% of teachers purchase school supplies for their classroom. Adopt a classroom is a free resource for teachers that allows for teachers to set up a fundraiser for their classroom. AdoptAClassroom doesn’t take any fees from donations made to teachers and the funds donated are available to spend immediately.
No Kid Left Hungry
Millions of students are living in hunger in the United States. Food is so important for student achievement. Without food students are tired and distracted by hunger and cannot concentrate on their education. No Kid Hungry funds schools directly through grants that help them get resources such as trucks, refrigerators, cooler bags and carts for delivering meals. No Kid Hungry supports and invests in school meal programs that play a critical role in feeding children.

First Book has distributed more than 225 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving low-income students in all 50 states. First Book brings new books and educational resources to children in need.
