Donors Choose: Bringing a Classroom to Life

January 28th, 2008 · No Comments · Interesting

Teachers spend a lot of their own money on items for their classrooms. I love the idea of donating money to a classroom project and I like how DonorsChoose uses the internet to accomplish their goals. On DonorsChoose.org, teachers post projects and the cost associated with funding the project. You can choose to fund a portion or all of the project through a donation. I recommend that if you can’t fund the entire cost of the program to let your friend and family know about the project. Pool your resources to get the job done. If your project is not fully funded, your donation will be allocated to another project of your choice.  DonorsChoose has a four star rating from Charity Navigator. It is important that you can trust the nonprofit you are giving to!  What is really cool about this site is that you can give gift certificates to friends and family, who then go onto the site and select projects they would like to fund with their gift certificate. Here is an example of a project from a New Jersey classroom. Click on the image below to help fund this project!
