Honoring Teachers

Through our Ready for School initiative this year, Cradles to Crayons will distribute more than 35,000 new backpacks full of supplies plus customized KidPacks® with shoes, clothing, and other essentials to help children be prepared and excited to learn.

Once these children arrive at school, we know that great teachers make all the difference in helping each child achieve academic and lifelong success.

Honoring Teachers

We invite you to make a financial gift in honor or in memory of a teacher who inspired you, or one who helped your child succeed.

Many of us have fond memories of a special teacher who inspired, guided, challenged, or believed in us. Maybe she helped you through a difficult time, or maybe he just made you laugh, but that person affected you in a positive way to help shape who you are today.

Cradles to Crayons
offers two ways to honor these important people.

Make a bigger impact by nominating an educator in our crowdfunding challenge, with the opportunity of naming our Giving Factory School Supplies section, seen by 2,000 volunteers per month.
