Providing Classroom Supplies

How We Help

Our Local Schools

According to a national survey conducted by Kelton Research, 97% of all teachers pay out of pocket for classroom supplies. The average American teacher spends approximately $1000 of their money on essential school items each year. As a result, the Sensory Research Foundation commits to helping students and teachers in the classroom! SRF awards free teacher supplies and monetary gift cards each month in an ongoing effort to support local schools.

“I just received the gift card for school supplies for my students. So far I have been able to get my students extra erasable markers and large print materials they would not normally have access to without these funds! Thank you so much to you and to your foundation for thinking of my students and helping to support their educational success!!” – Lauren Mehalek
