Supporting Charter School Classrooms with DonorsChoose.org

Supporting Charter School Classrooms with DonorsChoose.org

August 27, 2019

Did you know that DonorsChoose.org is the leading crowdfunding site for K-12 education? Their network of over 3 million donors loves to support educators.

The National Alliance is thrilled to partner with DonorsChoose.org to offer a streamlined way for charter school teachers and school leaders to secure funding for their projects. Schools have long relied on donations to enrich students’ academic experience and fund materials that system budgets cannot always afford. 

From computers to books to supplies, DonorsChoose.org offers a simple way for all charter schools to promote funding needs to potential donors across the country, regardless of the size of their school. As donors are giving online more and more, crowdfunding through DonorsChoose.org makes it possible for schools to raise more funding for classroom resources regardless of the size of their charter school.

How it works:

Teachers at verified schools request specific items.
DonorsChoose.org vets every single project that teachers post.
Donors and foundations contribute to these requests.
DonorsChoose.org orders the items and ships them to the school.
DonorsChoose.org notifies the school in advance of every shipment.
One of the most exciting things about setting up a project through DonorsChoose.org is that it gives supporters from across the country the opportunity to support any school, anywhere. In fact, it turns out that the top donations from each state come from other states.

This partnership will help ALL charter schools—even those that may have limited resources available for fundraising—to utilize this proven platform to directly benefit their schools and classrooms.

To date, DonorsChoose.org has raised an incredible $77M for charter school projects. Yours could be next!
