It's no secret that I love DonorsChoose.org. They have been helping my classroom and students for years! I want to share my top tips for getting started with this wonderful organization.
My Top 10 DonorsChoose.org Tips:
Sign-up: Sign up is free, simple, and you can personalize your own website address.
Build Your Points: It's tempting to want everything in the world, but start small with your first project.
Keep it Kid-Focused & Positive: Keeping it always framed in the positive (while being honest about the needs level of your class and school) will help donors feel they are part of a positive change and that's the coolest part of the DonorsChoose process!
Write Well: Although they do provide spell check, I recommend having someone else read your proposal before you submit, just for an extra set of eyes.
