NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOLS: VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

As the school year winds down, and you begin to plan for reopening schools, we want to extend the offer to fund your classroom and digital projects through our partnership with DonorsChoose.

Anyone who registers for NCSCvirtual before midnight by Monday, June 22, will be entered to win one of 50 $500 gift cards to help fund a project of their choice on DonorsChoose. That means you can fund projects for any teacher—including yourself—that needs support for sending educational care packages to students at home, classroom resources for the fall, and creating unique remote learning experiences online.

We will announce the winners on Monday, June 30. Register today to win and fund the many deserving educators who are working tirelessly for our students.
