DonorsChoose.org engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable, and personal way to address educational inequity. To date, teachers at half of all the public schools in America have posted classroom project requests on our site. Projects range from paper and markers for a poetry writing unit to violins for a school recital. More than 1.4 million “citizen philanthropists” have supported such projects, channeling books, field trips, technology, and other resources to more than 12 million students from low-income communities. In all, we’ve generated $258 million for learning experiences designed by our country’s most dedicated public school teachers. Fast Company recently named DonorsChoose.org to their list of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World for the second time, while GOOD Magazine highlighted us as one of 30 Places We Want to Work.
