Need classroom resources, but tired of reaching into your wallet to pay for them? Look no further! DonorsChoose is the free, non-profit platform for teachers to request materials for their classroom. Teachers create a classroom project (affectionately known by our teachers as "the shortest, easiest grant you'll ever write") and citizen donors give any amount to the project that inspires them. Since DonorsChoose was founded by a Bronx history teacher in 2000, this unique community of teachers, donors, and corporate and foundation partners have brought over $700 million to public schools across the country.
