A thank-you package is how you thank your donors for supporting your project. Thank-you packages serve a crucial purpose on our site, ensuring end-to-end integrity, and allowing donors to see the incredible impact they’ve made within your classroom! It consists of the following:
- Impact letter: A letter from you to your donors describing the impact of your project on your students. You'll submit your impact letter directly on our website. See instructions here.
- Photos: 2-10 photos of your students, the materials you received, handwritten student notes, student artwork -- whatever you think your donor will be most excited to see! Check out our photo guidelines.
- Student thank-yous: Handwritten/drawn thank-yous created by your students showing their appreciation. Before you get started, check out our student thank-you guidelines. Apart from these guidelines, we encourage you and your students to be creative! When your students are finished, mail all letters to our office and we'll forward them on to your donor(s).
- Not all projects require student thank-yous. You can check if you’ll need to do them by logging in to your account and looking at the “Actions Needed” column next to your project(s).
