When I taught school, most of my salary went to supplies, needed library books, etc.  We were not allowed to ask for donations from the parents and I was broke.

I wish this website was around when I was teaching.  Check it out http://www.donorschoose.org/

How it Works
  • 1. You give to a classroom project.
  • 2. We deliver the materials to the class.
  • 3. Kids learn and show it in photos and thank-you notes.

DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.

Here’s how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.

Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.

You’ll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $100, you’ll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.

At DonorsChoose.org, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions.We call it citizen philanthropy.

This is a great idea.  You can even put in your zip code, look at the schools in your area and see what they are in need of.

Check it out.  Even a dollar towards a teachers project goes a long way!
