Improve public education by engaging citizens in an online marketplace where teachers describe classroom needs and individuals can fund specific student projects.
DonorsChoose.org is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit web site, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom we call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund.
1. Public education in the United States is under-funded.
2. Anyone and everyone has the ability to help.
