If you are an educator or a student and you are unaware of the site donorschoose.org you are missing out on a grand opportunity to enhance the quality of instruction within your classroom. To date the students in my class have received roughly $1,000 worth of materials to improve their overall learning. Donor’s Choose is easy to use and should become a staple in education as we progress. Thank you to the hardworking people at Donor’s Choose, as well as those who made contributions in the name of education. If you are interested, Mr. Norman currently has a project to be funded on the site. It can be found at http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=401349


Here is a cool story regarding Donor’s Choose in California:

We are thrilled to announce today that we have received a tremendous and unexpected gift of $1,304,300 from the Claire Giannini Fund!  The donation will be used specifically to fully fund all 2,233  school projects in California, currently live on DonorsChoose.org.  In addition to fulfilling all California-based projects, the Claire Giannini Fund, located in San Francisco, is making a second grant of $100,000 to bring urgent projects from other states on the DonorsChoose.org site to under $99, with the hope that it inspires widespread donor support in bringing these projects to fruition.

This gift of over $1.3 million in funding will immediately impact 67,000 children in California with the vital resources they need to thrive in their classrooms.  We are so grateful for this chance to help so many teachers and students begin their next school year with the materials they need to  succeed and truly enjoy learning.

We are humbled and truly appreciate the generosity of the Claire Giannini Fund!
