How To Give Directly To Classroom Teachers In Newtown

by Categorized: Education, Newtown, teacher unions Date:

The Newtown Public Schools along with the American Federation of Teachers and the state Department of Education, have created a website where donors can give to classroom teachers in town. The website, through DonorsChoose.org, will collect funds and divide the cash equally among classroom teachers in Newtown.

The group says:

Each teacher may use his or her allocated funds to purchase classroom materials, fund a classroom-specific project, or use the funds as an opportunity to demonstrate the act of giving by donating portions of their funds to other classroom projects throughout Connecticut and/or nationwide.

Gifts are tax deductible.
