How it Works

  • Teachers Share Wishlists

    From May 9-20, 2022, educators complete a short survey to tell us more about their experience with Touchstones and the materials or training they would like to bring to their school, but don’t have funding available for.

  • We Match Teachers with Donors

    From July 5-19, 2022, donors have the opportunity to see all teacher wishlists and fund the requests to bring inclusive discussions to even more classrooms!

  • Teachers Receive Materials or Training

    At the end of the summer, Touchstones will be in touch with teachers to send materials to your school when it opens in the fall and schedule training to take place during the 2022-2023 school year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Complete this survey to tell us the materials you would like to request. The survey also includes space to share more about your experience with Touchstones.

Yes! Even if you haven’t used Touchstones in your classes yet, we still encourage you to share your materials requests!

If you’d like to participate, but aren’t sure which volume is most appropriate for your goals, please reach out to our K-12 Programs Manager, Brittany Usiak, between May 9-20 to help you decide.

The period for donors to view wishlists will be July 5-19. We will notify all teachers of the status of their requests after July 19.

We will ship all materials when your school’s front office is open again for the fall. Please indicate the date the school will be open in your survey response.
