Education is important to us, that’s why we love DonorsChoose.org. This website is dedicated to classrooms and helping children get what they need from a school environment. Teachers and students all over the nation post projects for people to donate to, from Math & Science to Warmth, Care & Hunger. Some of our favorites include adding classroom pets, but there are also requests for learning equipment, field trips, and even gloves for low-income children.
For those who like transparency in their donations, each Donors Choose project comes with a cost breakdown showing exactly where the money goes. You can also see the teacher connected to the project, how many students are affected, the grade of the students, where the school is located, and more!
Find the perfect classroom project to support at DonorsChoose.org.
Giving Tuesday is a great time to help support others, but don’t be afraid to donate at other times of the year as well! Nonprofit organizations rely on round-the-clock support to keep doing what they’re doing. Help them help the environment!
