Welcome, PTA/PTO!

Does your school have the supplies needed for students to have a rewarding experience, explore their potential and excel? Probably not.



Here are three easy and efficient ways to change the situation:

  1. ClassWish is the only nonprofit that lets anybody make a tax-deductible contribution* to fund any type of resource for any K-12 school in the country. They can help fund the things they care about. Many companies match employees’ donations, which can double their funding.
  2. Anyone can donate to fund needs for any teacher or coach, even if they do not yet have a wish list.
  3. Anyone can earn donations—at no cost—when they start their online shopping on your school or teacher pages of ClassWish (teachers do need to join in order to benefit from that, so please let them know about the opportunity). Yes, there are some businesses with this sort of “charity mall” type of donation, but ClassWish is far more generous, much quicker to pay, and much easier to use. See http://ClassWish.org/shop for more info.

Unlike some nonprofit school fundraising sites, we welcome administrators and PTA/PTO leaders, as well as librarians, school nurses and student teachers. You and they can all create wish lists. It’s quick and easy!


As soon as you have donations, just visit http://ClassWish-Vendors.org to place your request for materials.


The result? All of us become part of the education process, filling classrooms with the resources that will enrich students' experience and allow them to thrive.


Be sure to invite teachers to create wish lists. Here is an email you can send .

ClassWish Eligibility Requirements

ClassWish invites leaders of FIRST Robotics teams and also invites teachers, student teachers, substitute teachers, part-time after school teachers, staff developers, librarians, guidance counselors, school nurses, coaches, principals, administrators, other school employees directly serving students in an educational capacity, and officers acting on behalf of school Parent Teacher Association units recognized by the National Parent Teacher Association and on behalf of other parent teacher organizations (collectively, “Educators”) in K-12, public, magnet and charter schools, and private and parochial that are exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and that are in the 50 states or the District of Columbia (collectively, “Allowed Schools”) to create wish lists (“Wish Lists”) indicating the supplies and equipment they need for their students to excel and to submit requests (“Requests”) for ClassWish to provide particular items funded by contributions to such Wish Lists.

Funded Requests cannot be transferred to another Educator.

In order to register on ClassWish.org and create Wish Lists and Requests, you must attest to the following:

  • I confirm that I am a leader of a FIRST Robotics team or am an Educator in an Allowed School, as those terms are defined above;
  • The activities for which I intend to use any items received through ClassWish are legal and fall within the standards of my state and/or local board or department of education, and the policies of my school or, in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders, fall within the standards of FIRST Robotics;
  • All information I provide to ClassWish is accurate, and I will promptly update the information to keep it accurate;
  • Any Requests I submit and any funding or items I receive are solely for use in my classroom and/or school, or in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders are solely for use by my FIRST team, and any items I request through ClassWish will not be for my or anyone else’s personal use;
  • I agree that any items provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of (i) the school to which ClassWish has them delivered, and I will not take such items to another school, or (ii) in the case of a FIRST Robotics team such items provided to me by ClassWish or purchased with funds provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of the FIRST Robotics team or, if such is dissolved, shall become the property of FIRST Robotics.
  • I commit to including in my Wish Lists and Requests only items that will benefit my students’ education, including extracurricular activities, and to use any items that I receive from ClassWish only for such purposes.
  • I agree that in the event that ClassWish determines that any items I received through ClassWish are not being used in accordance with these Eligibility Requirements, I will return such items to ClassWish at my expense. In the case of FIRST teams, ClassWish may rely on the determination of FIRST Robotics in this regard.
