DonorsChoose is dedicated to supporting the unique needs of U.S. public school districts — especially regarding transparency, accountability, and student safety.
We’ve released a model PreK–12 Crowdfunding Policy for school boards and district leaders looking to empower teachers who request additional classroom resources through crowdfunding platforms like ours, while maintaining transparency and accountability best practices. This policy was designed with input from the AASA, NSBA, ASBO, and school administrators around the country.
With both a condensed and expanded policy, we hope that school boards and district leaders can use this to inform their existing crowdfunding policy, or implement it directly.
You can find this policy on our District Controls page, where you can also sign up for free, custom reporting, submit principal emails for automatic project notifications, and submit your district technology guidelines.
