Congratulations to these teachers who will use the donations to best meet the specific needs of their classroom or program!
You do not need to have a specific teacher or program leader in mind to make a donation. In fact, AEF encourages unspecified donations, which are directed to classrooms or programs most in need. To become an Adopt A Classroom donor, please visit www.alamedaeducation.org.
