First, you will need to be registered as a Partner with the school district’s EZPartner program before you can make contact with any schools about their requests. If you are unsure how to start, try reaching out to the school principal or the district’s Partners In Education program coordinator.

Once you are registered go to the EZPartner website and using the navigation menu (hamburger icon in upper left corner of site), choose REQUESTS or SCHOOL REQUESTS from the list.

This will display the ACTIVE REQUESTS LIST page showing all current school requests. You can filter by the School, by the Category (what type of resource is being requested), the Estimated Cost (usually associated with Donation requests) and the Expiration Date (deadline for assistance).

You can also search for specific text using the SEARCH bar in the upper right corner of the page.

Once you find a request you would like to contact a school about, use the ENVELOPE icon on the Request Summary to view the contact details and any additional details about the request.

This is the place where you will need to have your Partner account credentials ready. EZPartner will require you to sign-in to your account (if not already) before displaying any contact or other details about the Request.

From the REQUEST DETAILS page you can see the person at the school who created the request and the work phone and email address. Reach out using one of these two methods and if there’s a good fit, the school will take the next step of MATCHING you to their request and working with you on the details.

School requests can be found by using the ‘three-bar’ navigation menu on your school district’s EZPartner site and selecting the Requests link. Once on the Active Requests List page you can filter school requests by the school name, by the category of resource they are requesting or by the expiration date of their request. The expiration date is a way for the school to indicate if the request is time-sensitive.

If you have been working with a school on a request they created for a project (like staff appreciation luncheon) or a program (like student mentors), you now have the ability to review and record the outcomes for that request.

Step 1: Matching your business/organization to a request

The school needs to ‘Match’ your business to any request they have created and with which you are assisting them. You can check whether you have been matched by signing into your partner account and under the Partner menu selecting ‘Matched Requests’.

Step 2: Reviewing and recording outcomes for a matched requests

If you do not see the request listed then the school has not Matched you to that request yet. You will need to contact the school liaison and ask them to match your business so you can see the request on your ‘Matched Requests’ page.

When you see the request you can choose to review and record outcomes. Choose the type of outcome (Students, Staff, Volunteer, Donation) you want to view and this will pop-up a window that displays the current outcomes for the request. You can see what’s been entered already and make any additions you feel are needed.

If you are helping on a request that extends over a period of time, for example a school supplies drive that runs all month, enter multiple donations by first choosing a Date and then entering the details, including the value of the donation and a description.

After each entry press the SAVE button. When you are finished entering outcomes press the CLOSE button.
