Ordering from a Special Request vendor

Special Request projects are a great way to bring your biggest ideas to life! You can request materials from any vendor for a Special Request project. If your project is fully funded, we’ll purchase your items in 1 of 3 ways:

  • Online order: If the item can be ordered easily through a website, we'll purchase it for you and have it shipped to your school. You can choose any online vendor, as long as it is a legitimate business based in the United States
  • Check: If the item requires a purchase order or invoice to be purchased, you’ll upload a payment document and we’ll send a check to your vendor.
  • Reimbursement: If we can't place your order through a website or payment document, you or your school will need to purchase the items and upload itemized receipts for reimbursement. Please wait to make any purchases for reimbursement until we send you an email with instructions. Read more about reimbursements for Special Request projects.

If you’re interested in purchasing a gift card as part of your Special Request project, please read our guidelines for requesting gift cards.
