School Makeover Showcase

Transforming More Than Classrooms

Over the years, we’ve partnered with the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFP Foundation) and their Extra Yard for Teachers Makeover Project to provide new, fully equipped educational spaces that promote learning and personal growth.

Teaming up with CFP Foundation gives us a special opportunity to act on the mission we share: improving resources for educators while providing access to better learning opportunities for children.

Together since 2015, we have donated our time, resources, and products to makeover more than 44 schools. For months leading up to their makeover, these schools receive our customary top-notch levels of service through Projects by Designs as well as products from our proprietary brands including Classroom Select, Califone, 21st Century Safe School, Childcraft, School Smart, Sax, Abilitations, and Sportime.

Learn more about our partnership with the CFP Foundation and the Extra Yard for Teachers Project, plus take a look at some of our amazing transformations!
