Teacher Appreciation Week 2023 is May 8–12! We think all school staff deserve praise every single day of the year, but we love having time set aside to spoil them something extra.
Cheddar Up users definitely deliver. We see hundreds of Teacher Appreciation Week collections every year. Here are a few we love — but first, a little shameless plug about why we think this is the best destination for group gifting!
Why to Use Cheddar Up for Teacher Appreciation Week 2023
It’s truly as easy as A,B,C, and 1,2,3.
Automatically sort + count money received, and attach information, like contact details or messages for the teacher. (Simply add an item question for those.) Eliminate triple-checking your payment feed and following-up during a busy time of year!
Bottom-dollar fees — as low as $0.59 — and you get to decide who pays them.
Convenient online option encourages prompt payments and more of them!
One customizable URL for everything you’re collecting (even sign ups for Teacher Appreciation Week 2023 volunteers!) that’s easy to share far and wide! And 1 dashboard for the organizer to see itemized details.
Two simple steps: Click and pay. No account setup required! (Which also helps with the prompt payments thing.)
Bonus: We know teachers! In an exclusive survey, we asked what gifts they love (and which ones they don’t).
1. Teacher Appreciation Week Flower-Gram
2. School Staff Superheroes
What a creative way to collect money for Teacher Appreciation Week! Divide the entire staff into teams, and let donors choose a team. We think it’d be fun to give each team a different gift (or gift card, of course), surprise a different team each day with a morning treat, or incorporate some friendly competition, like trivia questions. (Teachers have plenty to do this time of year! Keep it quick and simple.)
3. Teacher Coffee Cart and Lunch
Our personal teacher friends tell us they love when you feed them! Take the coffee cart for a run one day, and feed the entire staff lunch on another. We love that this example shows how you can incorporate monetary donations, food donations, and volunteer sign ups in one Cheddar Up collection.
4. Redecorate Teacher Lounge for Teacher Appreciation Week
This is such a simple, low-prep idea that will have a huge impact. Accept donations to redecorate the teacher lounge, and you can give something the staff can appreciate all year long!
