DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Donors Choose engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable, and personal way to address educational inequity.
