Donors Choose.org

I love this charity because it supports teachers and schools and you get to choose specifically who you want to impact with your donation. School teachers all over the country register specific projects with the costs included. You can select projects based on age level, class type and area of country. It means you can match your passion. If you love science, the arts, literacy or math, there is a classroom project that needs your help. You can give as little as $1.00, support part of a project or the complete project. Donors will receive a thank you note from the teacher or class.

Here is an excerpt from the DonorsChoose.org web site.

DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.
Here’s how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.

Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.

You’ll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $100, you’ll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.

At DonorsChoose.org, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
