Week 24: Donors Choose
Hello! This week, we are bringing GIVE52 into the classroom with Donors Choose. They make it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. The goal is to help students and teachers get the tools they need for a great education.
Donors Choose are open to any public school in America and are there for teachers through every step of the process. To verify each classroom request, they vet all projects, purchase the items, and ship materials directly to verified schools. So far, Donors Choose has raised over 500 million dollars and helped more than 22 million students in over 73,000 schools.
My friend Meenakshi, an incredibly talented educator in Detroit, used Donors Choose to provide her class with laptop computers. She says:
Excitingly, you can get very specific about the type of classroom projects you would like to fund. Interested in classroom health & wellness? Want to bolster STEM programs? Or maybe your heart is into guaranteeing arts education? Whatever your focus, you can narrow down teachers and classrooms to specifically help with your donation.
Play with the site, and discover some incredible opportunities to make an impact.
The donors choose motto: Support a classroom. Build a future.
Here's to the future, let's help make it awesome.
