Donors Choose is a wonderful philanthropic website that allows teachers to post projects they need funded. The requests vary from basic school supplies to technology to field trips.
My first project was posted this morning. I am trying to fund a digital microscope to use in the classroom next year (or even this year if it gets funded in time!).
Some companies will match donations, making it easier to get the funding you need. You don't have to apply separately for this - the companies let Donors Choose know the type of projects they'd like to fund, and if your project meets their criteria, then it automatically applies the "Double Your Impact" offer. I am lucky that the ECA Foundation is able to match donations made to my project.
Hopefully we'll be able to get the $92 needed to fund my project. If you know of anyone able to make a tax deductible donation, I'd appreciate you passing my project along!
