Help a Classroom in High Poverty Region: $1 November 07, 2008 9:20 PM
[ send green star]
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.
Proposals range from "Magical Math Centers" ($200) to "Big Book
Bonanza" ($320), to "Cooking Across the Curriculum" ($1,100). Any
individual can search such proposals by areas of interest, learn about
classroom needs, and choose to fund the project(s) they find most
compelling. Donations can be as little as $1.
