Colorado teachers can be awarded up to $1,000 for new projects

Colorado Teacher grant

Great news for our hard-working teachers: Colorado teachers can apply for up to $800 in grants to purchase materials for their classrooms through a new state initiative.

The $11 million in federal COVID relief funds is aimed at helping teachers purchase materials to address needs and learning deficits that came out of the COVID pandemic.

Starting today, preschool through 12th grade public school teachers can apply through the DonorsChoose Colorado site and submit a project.

How to Qualify for DonorsChoose Colorado

  • Create a teacher account at if you don’t already have one. Then return to this page to follow the rest of these instructions.
  • Sign into your account.
  • Teach PreK-12 in an Colorado public school.
  • On the “HI” page while creating your project, enter the campaign code COLORADO by clicking “Enter a campaign code.”
  • Request resources to support students’ social, emotional, and mental well-being as well as the impacts of interrupted academic learning as a result of COVID-19.
    • Keep in mind that your $1,000 grant includes the materials cost, applicable taxes and fees, shipping costs, and other processing costs. To keep your total project goal at $1,000 you should request around $800 in materials; you will see the project’s total goal update as you progress.
  • In your project essay, make sure to describe how the resources you’re requesting will help your students through pandemic-impacted learning. 

And then create your project! If your project meets the above criteria, you’ll receive $1,000 in funding as soon as your project is reviewed by their team and posted on their site, while funds last.
