Donors are people just like you and companies like us — people interested in supporting education, who search the site and give to the project that inspires them most. When a project reaches its funding goal, the materials are shipped to the school, and donors receive photos of the project and a letter from the teacher. Schools participating in BJ’s Adopt-A-School Giving Program receive a one-time donation to use toward discretionary programs, such as field trip and special events, reading enhancement programs or other educational needs, and a complimentary BJ’s Business Membership, providing access to low-cost, high-quality supplies. Maximum award: varies by project. Eligibility: U.S. public elementary schools. Deadline: Rolling.
