Crowdsource Financial Support for Your Classroom

We all know that educators need supplies and materials for their classrooms but don't know how to get them for free! During this session, four educators share how they successfully used DonorsChoose.Org to fund specific projects in their classrooms, what are other sites teachers are using for crowdfunding, and how to best use those platforms.

MAT alumnae Lily Eisermann and Bevan Brunelle and current MAT student Anna Furr provided us with helpful resources and walk-throughs to fund our classrooms using crowdsourcing platforms like GoFundMe, DonorsChoose, and more! They discussed the pros and cons of each resource to help educators know what will work best for their individual classrooms.

We wanted to make sure that everyone who registered had the link to a video and the slides from the presentation.
