DonorsChoose.org: Supporting Public Education One Teacher at a Time
New York, NY
For those of you who don’t know about them, we’d like to tell you a little about DonorsChoose.org. They are a highly respected nonprofit online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students, teachers and classrooms in need. In fewer than 10 years, they have raised over $92.7 million and helped over 5.5 million students in public schools around the country!
How does it work? Teachers for pre–k programs through high school post projects and materials requests on DonorsChoose.org. Then you browse the different projects, find one you like and donate any amount from $1 and up to help fund that project. Once a project is fully funded, you even get a cost report that shows how every dollar was spent. But the best part is that it?s all up to you…the school, the teacher, the project, the materials and the amount you give.
“Their idea of ‘citizen philanthropy’ is exactly what it sounds like,” says Kevin Carnes, Lakeshore’s President of Education. “DonorsChoose.org provides everyone everywhere with an easy way to support public education at its heart: the classroom. We couldn’t be more pleased to help spread the word about their efforts.”
