Staff and Teacher Appreciation, Simplified

We make group gifting from parents to teachers easy for schools.

Give your staff the gift of appreciation from the people they impact the most: the parents and students. But, this time, do it without the hassle.


With our elegant digital group-gifting service.

A Teacher Feeling Appreciated

Trusted by Schools, PTAs, Teachers, and Parents

End-of-Year Thank You Gifts? Teacher Appreciation Week?


We know first-hand that coordinating staff appreciation, like Teacher Appreciation Week, is a challenge.  You might have to help organize and oversee parent committees that handle the effort, or wrangle support from reluctant people. You might even need to organize the appreciation yourself, which can feel ethically ambiguous at best and inappropriate at worst.

Overwhelmingly, this can feel like a second full-time job even when you do have the right help. And that’s why we’re here—to simplify and streamline group gift-giving so you and your students’ parents can express gratitude wholeheartedly, with no frustration or stress behind-the-scenes.

It only takes a few minutes to get started, and we manage the process from there.

Staff Appreciation in Action (What We’ve Learned):


It’s not uncommon to raise $500, $750, or more per classroom during Teacher Appreciation Week.


Parents love using our platform to appreciate your staff. Household participation averages above 50% for schools. If you have 25 students in your classroom, you can expect between 9 and 18 families to participate. 


Teachers LOVE their Appreciation Albums. They also love the choice of redeeming eGift cards of their choice. They tell us clearly: I don’t want another scented candle or apple-themed coffee mug.

Ooh this is amazing! Thank you! You guys are so generous! It was my pleasure coaching, honestly.

Why Use The Appreciation Company for Your School?

Save Time

It can take hours to write the emails, send reminders, collect amounts per teacher or classroom, purchase gifts, and write cards. We have demonstrated what used to take 5 hours now takes about 5 minutes. It is an unbelievable 98% time savings. 

Eliminate Frustration

Email reminders, reconciling dollar amounts per parent giving, taking contributions – these are just a few of the frustrations we eliminate. 

Keep Data Secure and Stay Accountable

Gone are the days of relying on a room parent to send a group email, collect cash from dozens of parents, and deposit money in their personal bank account. Instead, everything is secure and tracked digitally.

Appreciate the Entire Staff

Recognize and appreciate ALL of your hard-working staff, not just teachers.

Keep Individual Gift Amounts Private

We eliminate the awkwardness of one organizing parent knowing how much or how little other parents give.

Stay Organized

We’ll manage the reminders leading up to and after the Appreciation has passed. For the 10% of contributors who just aren’t timely, you have the option to show appreciation even after the Appreciation date.
