Here’s how it works: Pick-a-Projects are submitted by SPS teachers and stay online until they are funded, or for 40 days, whichever comes first. If at the end of 40 days, the project isn’t fully funded, all donations made will still go to the teacher who submitted the request, to use for their classroom. Browse through the projects available to find the projects you want to support.

Next, make your donation online. No account is required. It only takes a few minutes to contribute, on our secure website. You decide how much to give, beginning at $5 per contribution. You can donate $5, $20, fund the whole project, or an amount in between. It’s up to you! 100% of your donation will go to the Pick-a-Project you choose!

Any amount you give will help students right here in our own community to have the tools and resources they need, in order to have innovative, creative learning projects that go beyond the basics, in their classrooms. Plus, it’s tax-deductible. The Foundation for Springfield Public Schools will mail or email your tax receipt.

Matching gifts: If your employer has a matching gift program, we encourage you to notify them of your contribution and multiply the power of your gift! If you or your employer need any assistance with documentation or have questions we will be glad to assist you.

Share on social media: Share the excitement of giving to Pick-a-Project with your friends and co-workers on Facebook or Twitter.
