Teresa Danks, Begging for Education

$30,521 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 279 people in 16 months
Created July 19, 2017
Update: Due to the overwhelming support, Teresa is now poised to help other teachers and bring awareness of the problems facing education today. The campaign has been increased to reflect these evolving goals. Please visit our Facebook page @beggingforeducation, Thank you.

Teresa Danks is a 3rd Grade Teacher in Oklahoma public schools.  She is dedicated to raising money for teachers classrooms as well as bringing awareness to the lack of funding that the schools in Oklahoma receive.

In Teresa's efforts to raise money for her classroom via social media, her story has gone viral. She has been interviewed on both local and national television and radio.

With the success of her story connecting to so many people, she has been able to raise an amazing amount of money that goes beyond her original goal that she had set just for her classroom. This campaign has been extra successful in addition to the donations by individuals and companies outside of gofundme.com.

With your support, we can make not only the teachers successful in Oklahoma but through the nation. Teresa has a vision of no teacher should spend money out of pocket, especially in Oklahoma where the salaries make it difficult for teachers to support their personal households much less provide for the supplies they need daily, monthly or yearly. 

Please continue to make your donations through this gofundme campaign as we get Teresa's foundation set up in the next weeks. Oklahoma residents can visit any RCB Bank to make a donation as they are now accepting donations on Teresa's behalf until the foundation is in place.

Teresa thanks everyone so much for your caring, support, kind words and donations.

An educated nation is a better nation ~Teresa Danks

It has been a long 9 months, but yesterday all of our efforts in the State of Oklahoma have culminated into a statewide teacher walkout demanding funding for our schools. We have arrived at the state capitol in huge numbers and will continue this fight for our classrooms, teachers and students as long as it takes.

Education in Oklahoma, despite the House Bill 1010xx passed by our legislature, is still not funded. House Bill 1010xx is $150 million in the red and with no funding, there will be no raises, textbooks or classroom supplies. We are fighting for the children of Oklahoma so that teachers will stay working in our state and have the tools necessary to perform the best job possible in their classrooms.

Additionally, we are shining the light on the funding of education as a whole in Oklahoma that has revealed some major accounting holes that need to be addressed. Should education get the funding it needs, we will continue to fight for our children to ensure that the funding is not diverted again.

Teresa Danks is continuing to fund classrooms and other needs of teachers and students across Oklahoma as her fundraising allows and we appreciate every red cent! Thank you for your continued support!
