What is DonorsChoose?
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, DonorsChoose delivers 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 $50, you'll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.
At DonorsChoose, 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. It's called citizen philanthropy.
