From the NEF website:
A donation to the NEF is a wonderful way to honor a specific teacher, staff person, family member, or other important person in your child’s life. Teachers and staff always appreciate hearing directly from a student or family. Donations may also be made in honor of relatives, friends, coaches, or as a memorial remembrance.
If you have any questions or problems please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEF Teacher Appreciation Cards are available for you to personalize and deliver yourself, or the NEF will send them out for you, acknowledging your donation. We’ve heard from many teachers who very much appreciate the “personal touch” of a handwritten note, so we encourage you to consider purchasing cards that you can personalize and deliver.
