Celebrating the most innovative teachers on February 28!

Fast Company just named DonorsChoose.org one of 2019’s Most Innovative Companies — so we’re celebrating the world’s most innovative teachers!

Finding the names of your donors to complete your thank-you package

The names of the donors who require student thank-yous can be found in your thank-you package instructions. You can access these instructions by logging into your account and scrolling down the page to the “Projects” section. Click on the “Submit thank-you package” button and you’ll see the instructions for each component of your thank-you package. Your thank-you package instructions page for student thank-yous will list the names of all donors who should receive student thank-yous for your project. Please submit at least 5 student thank-you letters per qualifying donor listed.

Note: All donors will see your 6 project photos and impact letter. However, not all donors request to receive student thank-yous. Only donors who give $50 or more to a project (in most cases - there are a few exceptions!) qualify to request student thank-yous. In some cases, donors qualifying to receive student thank-yous may choose to opt out of receiving these thank-yous. We only list the names of donors who have qualified and indicated they wish to receive student thank-yous.

Regarding anonymous donors: We give donors the opportunity to share their names if they’d like to, but we also respect their privacy if they choose to remain anonymous. It's possible you won't see names listed for all of your donors. In this case, please have your students address these donors as “Dear Friend.”
