DonorsChoose.org

DonorsChoose.org is an education crowdfunding non-profit where anyone can help a classroom in need. Teachers request the resources and supplies they need most for their classrooms, and donors support the projects they find most inspiring. DonorsChoose.org helps students - particularly those in high-poverty communities and those affected by natural disasters - access the books, art supplies, field trips, technology, instruments and other resources they need to succeed.

Through the platform, DonorsChoose.org accepts project requests from teachers and reviews each request to ensure the items requested match the project description. Once a project is funded, DonorsChoose.org purchases the materials and ships them directly to the classroom. Teachers provide photos of the materials being used in the classroom, and students write thank you notes to donors.

DonorsChoose.org founder and CEO Charles Best launched the site from his Bronx classroom in 2000. He saw a need for the site after talking to his fellow teachers about the books, materials and field trips they desired for their students.
