DonorsChoose.org is Pretty Darn Cool

Before Christmas, Google sent me a gift card to thank me for making them rich. The gift card was redeemable for $100 in donations at DonorsChoose.org – a site that coordinates donations with teachers who could use some funding for their classrooms.

I threw the $100 toward a math project at Burroughs Community School in Minneapolis. That went toward the $493 the teacher requested for the project.

Here’s a response I received after the project was fully funded:

The site offers a pretty cool way to connect with teachers in your local community. Even if you don’t have a diem to donate, try looking up some schools near your home to see what motivated are working on.

If you’re a Deets reading teacher with a project listed on Donors Choose, let me know. I’ll pimp it here to help get it funded. Or, feel free to link to it in the comments.

  1. DonorsChoose is great! I have my girlfriend (who is a teacher) vet some of the choices.

    I also somewhat screen by level of poverty in the school. I was not about to give the hoity toity west Bloomington high school money for their 100th extracurricular program when an elementary school teacher in Minneapolis just wants a rug for her kids to sit on.
