Visit Find It & Fund it Now! 

Find It & Fund It is an interactive online portal for the Alachua County Public Schools, which allows teachers to post projects for funding up to $1,500 and provides an opportunity for members of the community to support local teachers.

Community Information

If you are interested in funding a project, follow the Find it and Fund it link above to access their website. Projects can be found by searching according to Teacher, School, or Category.  When you find a project you would like to fund, you will be asked to register and then can complete your donation. Once a donation is made, money will be sent to The Education Foundation, and then the Foundation will disperse the funds to the individual teachers through the school. Please note that if a teacher receives partial funding and cannot complete the original project, they may use the donated money to fund other projects for their classroom. Additionally, supplies and equipment purchased with money from Find It & Fund It are the property of the school and not the individual teacher. 

Teacher Information

To post new projects, teachers and staff can apply by visiting You can register/log-in at the top right of the website and begin to write your project proposal. Once the project has been submitted, the principal or designated authority at your school will approve the project, and then final approval will be given through The Education Foundation. When final approval is given, the project will be live on the Find It & Fund It website, and will be available to be funded by members of the community.

Find It & Fund It will be most successful if we all work together to promote the program. Teachers and administrators can share projects on Facebook and other various social media sites, as well as send e-mails to friends, PTA’s, and other business partners in order to spread the word about Find It & Fund It. The Education Foundation will also be reaching out to the community and various businesses to ask for their support.
