You earn a point every time:
- Your project is funded and you confirm you still want the materials within 6 days.
- You upload your project photos and impact letter on or before their due date.
- We receive your student thank-yous on or before their due date (if your project doesn't require student thank-yous, you'll receive this point automatically).
You spend points every time you submit a project. The “cost” of each project depends on what you’re asking for. A project requesting...
- Materials found in our vendor directory cost 1 point.
- A class visitor or Professional Development visitor costs 1 point.
- A class trip or Professional Development trip costs 1 point.
- A “Special Request” for materials not found in our vendor directory costs 6 points.
As of October 2nd, 2019 materials found in our vendor directory cost 1 point, regardless of the cost of materials. Previously, materials projects cost up to 4 points. In addition, we no longer deduct points for late confirmations or thank-you packages.
If you have followed all of our guidelines and your account falls below 0 points, please contact our team. We'll see what we can do!
