Yes! Totally free for consumers, schools, and educators.
ClassWish.org/Shop Makes it Easier.
Here, there is no need to register, provide personal information, watch for an email, activate an account, or log in. Just go to the shopping page of the school or teacher you want to support, and click a merchant to start shopping and earning donations.
ClassWish.org/Shop is Much More Generous.
Other sites of this type are for-profit businesses that generally donate 20% to 50% of the affiliate fees they receive. We donate 75%. (We wish we could donate it all, but we need to cover our expenses. As we grow, we expect to be able to donate more, so please spread the word and encourage others to shop here – especially if they are connected with your favorite schools and teachers).
ClassWish.org/Shop Lets You Support More Schools.
At ClassWish.org/Shop, you can shop to support any public or nonprofit K-12 school, day- care center, after-school program, youth-serving nonprofit (such as Girl Scouts, Girls and Boys Clubs, and youth sports teams) in the country. We already have about 99% of the K- 12 schools on our site, and we add more all the time. If you do not see your favorite school, just let us know so we can add it.
ClassWish.org/Shop Lets You Support Individual Teachers
Here, you can shop to support not just schools, but even individual educators or school activities. No other site lets you do that. Want to support the school band, football team, or other student activity? Just ask the teacher or coach to create a wish list. We welcome:

ClassWish is a nonprofit. Since our mission is helping teachers and children, we donate much more: 75%. (We need to use some of the fees to pay our expenses, but we expect to increase the 75% figure as we grow – so spread the word and let others know about this site).
We provide instructions on our web site for educators to use funds to obtain educational materials from the vendors we buy from. In short:
Different merchants pay us different amounts for referring customers.
On each school shopping page and teacher shopping page, we show what we believe to be the percentage of the purchase price that we will be donating to the wish list accounts (that is, the affiliate fee we expect to receive, multiplied by 75%). From time to time, the actual donation percentage may be more or less. Among other reasons, some merchants pay different amounts on different categories of items; many will not pay an affiliate fee on gift cards or certificates; and some may change their affiliate fees. In case of any discrepancy, you can rest assured that we always donate 75% of the affiliate fees we receive from the merchants. That is far more than the 20% to 50% that other sites donate.
Absolutely! Faster and with greater certainty.
All sites like this deal with merchants through the same affiliate networks, so we call get reports on the same schedule. It can take up to eight weeks from the time of purchase for merchants to report sales, and travel partners generally do not report purchases until a few weeks after the travel ends.
There are four big difference in when those funds are available to the schools to start helping students and teachers.
Some people have toolbars in their web browsers that will override other affiliate links, including links from ClassWish.org/Shop. If you want to earn 75% of the affiliate fee for your chosen school or teacher, be sure to remove any of those toolbars, including ones you may have from GoodShop, OneCause, iGive, or We-Care!
Of course! Just start at your ClassWish.org shopping page.
Start by finding your school, and just follow the directions. We made it quick and easy. You will be up and running in minutes.
