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:
- 6 photos: Photos of you and your students using the donated materials and implementing the project. These 6 photos are posted by you and are visible only to those who donated to the project. Check out our photo guidelines.
- Impact letter: A personalized letter from you to your donors describing the impact the materials you received had on your students. You'll submit your impact letter directly on our website. See instructions here.
- Digital student thank-yous: (completely optional) While student thank-you notes are not currently required, if you’re interested in showing some extra gratitude for your donors, we’re piloting optional digital student thank-yous.
From March 2020 until earliest July 2021, our student thank-yous program is paused. In ordinary times when school doors are still open and physical classes are still in session, donors can also receive student thank-you notes:
- 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.
To help with your thank-you package, check out our suggested timeline to help plan and complete each component.
Thank you for all your hard work!
