Looking for Ways to Fund Your Teachley Subscription?
Funding your Teachley subscription
Are your classroom funds running short for the year? Is your school budget extremely tight? Here are a few other ways that teachers and schools have found funding for Teachley.
Parent Teacher Associations/Organizations
PTA/PTOs have been a great way for schools to fund Teachley when budgets are limited. Here is a sample letter you may use when requesting funds from your PTA/PTO for Teachley. We've also created a presentation for you to use here that highlights different parts of Teachley's research-based program. If you are considering a classroom subscription, you may want to share Teachley with other teachers in your school before presenting Teachley to your parent group.
DonorsChoose is a great way for teachers to get much needed classroom supplies and programs funded. Teachley is considered a "Special Request" project on DonorsChoose, which costs 6 points. If you already have a DonorsChoose account and have funded at least 2 projects, you should have 6 points ready to spend. If you are new to the site, you can create an account here and you will receive 3 points. Start requesting projects and build up enough points to apply for Teachley. Here's more info about how "Special Requests" work.
Local Funding opportunities
Many businesses offer grant opportunities to schools and teachers. In fact, there are several websites that aggregate grant opportunities. Since Teachley focuses on improving students' mathematical thinking, conceptual understanding, and fact fluency as well as providing data reporting to support teaching, our program may be covered by various STEM grants. Before applying, you may want to consider requesting a multi-year quote from us, so that you do not need to reapply for funding every year. You may also want to work with other teachers in your school to apply for a school subscription rather than a single classroom subscription.
