DonorsChoose is the online marketplace where teachers and citizens from every corner of America, and all walks of life, connect to give students the resources they need to learn. Teachers can request funds for student projects, books, trips, supplies, visitors, technology, and more! Nasco is proud to support and partner with DonorsChoose in providing essential classroom materials, and with a 75-year history of serving the educational community, we are positioned perfectly to be your partner, too.
Submit your ideas for classroom materials and connect to caring individuals who want to fund them. At DonorsChoose.org, educators propose an idea for a student project by writing a brief essay and completing some simple forms. Volunteers screen proposals to ensure that projects will directly serve students and to confirm the cost and availability of the resources that the educator requests. Then, individuals from across the nation can review and choose to fund the proposal(s) they find the most compelling.
Support a classroom. Build a future.
Donors get photos of the project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If a donor gives over $50, they also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.
At DonorsChoose.org, gifts as little as $1 get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.
