Did you know that teachers are fitting the bill for school supplies?
While it’s no secret that teachers’ salaries are not the best, did you know that, due to chronic under-funding of schools, ninety-four percent of teachers in this country reported to spending almost $500 out of their own salaries over a two-year span for classroom essentials?
We are not talking about computers, iPads or state of the art gadgetry; we are talking grassroots essentials like crayons, board markers, pens, books, plastic sleeves, and tubs of disinfecting wipes. Most of the time, these teachers are not compensated or reimbursed adequately and are not rewarded with overtime wages to make up for these personal monetary losses.
Teachers strive for the best education for our children
We believe that those heroic teachers striving to give our future leaders and doctors the best education possible on a shoestring budget need our help more than ever. They deserve better, and so do all the students who are potentially missing out on better education.
It’s time we help!
Teacher Funder gives teachers the tools to easily set up a profile to let the world know what work they are doing and why every single donation is important to their cause. These profiles are incredibly easy to share via social media and even easier to donate to.
What’s more is that teachers, students and parents alike can track these causes, help promote them, and know that each donation is giving the gift of a much more fulfilling and rewarding education without teachers resorting to subsidizing it themselves.
How it all works
Teacher Funder was set up to help teachers raise the necessary funds to help their students and we strongly believe that they should not have to pay out of pocket for this. We offer teachers the chance to have funding given to them directly with no middle man involvement
