We have taken the following steps to reduce any barriers to completing thank-you package steps:
- Proactively extended the deadline on all thank-you package elements due this school year by at least six weeks from their original due date
- Suspended the processing of student thank-yous while our offices are closed. If you have remaining student thank-yous, you can send them as normal (using the business reply label in your account) and your notes will not be considered late.
- You will not be required to submit student thank-yous for donations made after 3/20/20 until further notice.
If you cannot complete your thank-you package
Contact us if you cannot complete your thank-you package and we will waive your requirements.
If you've already mailed your student thank-you notes
The DonorsChoose office is currently closed due to NY State directives — and we are unable to process any student thank yous at this time. If you are receiving reminders that your thank yous are due, you can extend their due date here.
Discontinuing student thank-you notes until further notice
We’re no longer asking teachers to create thank-you notes with their students until schools are able to open their doors again. Donors will not receive student thank-you notes for donations of any amount made after March 20, 2020. While this is a big shift for us, we know it’s the right choice -- we’re glad we can take one thing off teachers’ minds right now. We’re looking forward to bringing back the glittery, magic-markered, sweetly drawn notes we all love to receive as soon as we can.
