Planning for the Summer

The project you're creating now might be fully funded close to or even during summer break. You can rest assured that we are sensitive to your summer schedule, so you can post projects all year, and we'll make sure you get your resources when you want them.

Going on break? Here’s when you’ll get your resources:

  • If your project is fully funded close to or during summer break we’ll hold your materials until the start of the 2018-2019 school year. We’ll order your resources at the beginning of the next school year so packages don’t deliver to closed doors.
  • Choose to have your resources sent when you need them. Not all schools are closed over break, and some teachers need their resources during the summer. You can tell us your availability when your project is fully funded, and we’ll place your order based on the date you select. Just to make sure everything gets where it should, we’ll also email your principal that resources are on the way.

If you are changing schools

If you’re moving to a new DonorsChoose.org eligible school next year, and you’re continuing as a full-time teacher, you can move forward with completing your project as described, at your new school.

Just remember to update your school address in your teacher account under the Public info section, as soon as you know you’re moving. Do this before your project is fully funded, and we’ll ship your resources to your new school at the start of the 2018-2019 school year. We’ll also give you a chance to confirm your current school when your project is fully funded.

Order status

Magazine orders

For Magazine subscriptions see this subscription schedule to find out when you’ll get your magazines, once your project is fully funded.
