Yes! Wishing Well is completely inclusive of all education programs, unlike other wish list sites that exclude the majority of people engaged in helping children learn.
We welcome anyone working to improve the education of our youth including public and private school teachers and schools, early head start and head start, school-wide campaigns, PTAs, day care centers, religious affiliate education programs, after-school programs, Y's, Boys and Girls Clubs, and many more.
Creating a wish list is simple—just tap, swipe and click! We truly believe our platform is the easiest way for educators to create a wish list and share it with potential donors all in a single app. We also make it super easy for donors to donate products and communicate with teachers in the app.
No worries! You do not need to achieve set goals to receive your supplies. In fact, when a donor purchases items from your list, they will be shipped within days! Other sites require you to achieve 100% of your goal first, which means 30% of teachers never receive supplies. We think that is unfair.
As soon as you choose to make your list public, it is available to the world! No waiting for verification or 3rd party screeners.
Not at all! Our program is absolutely free.
Absolutely. If you choose, you can create your wish list, keep it private and share it only with the people you want to know about it. In this case it will not be found via public search.
No, we do not communicate with your school or program. That choice is completely up to you.
We leave that decision entirely up to you and the organization you teach at or support. You might decide the items belong to the classroom, school, teacher, students, etc.
100% of every donor's purchase goes to the supplies chosen—no fees, no surprises. Other sites keep between 15% to 40% of donors' donations, which means a huge amount of money doesn't get to the people who need it.
Depending upon the situation, yes. If you choose to itemize donations on your taxes rather than taking a standard deduction, then donations to a teacher or organization may be tax-deductible. We recommend speaking with a tax advisor.
Absolutely! We have many ways to assist with white-glove support, where our education specialists can do the shopping for you and ensure your donation is tax deductible. Reach out to us at [email protected] to discuss your needs.
No, we will not. It is up to the wish list creators to decide how to handle ongoing communications with donors.
We'll walk you through every step of the way!
