Q: How can my school or non-profit organization request a care package?
A: We like to keep it simple! Schools and non-profit organizations can complete our care package request form by clicking here. As a small, family-run non-profit organization we cannot commit to fulfill all requests received but should your school or organization be selected you will receive an email from us noting that you were selected.
Q: Does it cost my school or organization anything to receive a care package?
A: There is no cost to a school or organization! Thankfully, all care packages are paid for in thanks to the generosity of donors to The Crayon Project. If you’d like to support The Crayon Project, please make a tax-deductible donation by clicking here. (include link to donation page)
Q: How do you determine what school or organization will receive a care package?
A: As you can imagine, the need for these care packages of multicultural art supplies is immense and the number of requests we receive is quite high. Once you submit your request form, a team of volunteers reviews the submission and awards schools and non-profit organizations upon review. Should you be selected, we’ll be in touch!
Q: Where has The Crayon Project shipped to?
A: The Crayon Project has shipped to at least one school or non-profit organization in all fifty states and Washington, DC! We have also shipped to Puerto Rico, American Samoa and Guam!
Q: Are donations to The Crayon Project tax-deductible?
A:Yes, The Crayon Project is a 501c3 charitable organization! Be sure to consult with your tax advisor but let us know if you need anything from us to support your tax-deductible donation.
Q: Can a business contribute to The Crayon Project?

Additionally, if your company matches charitable donations we can help facilitate that matching gift as needed.
