As a retired & former teacher, I often sent letters to businesses asking for donations.

I received tens of thousands over the years for field trips, and other projects.

It's a tax deduction for these businesses, and my classes benefited from this.

Good to try these sources but they aren't giving as much as they were in the past...

@Howard Beal:

I don't know about today, but you can try more letters. Utility companies worked well.

The biggest obstacle may be administrative approval. If it wasn't mentioned in the handbook, I did it without asking.
