Funding Our Future $1 At A Time

Now that summer is over, it is time to get used to the regularity of early mornings, long work days, and the consistent grind of what is always a lengthy and eventful school year. For teachers, this means they must solidify their classroom settings, how they will run their class, and what their necessary resources will be in regards to such.

Many teachers have shifted towards education campaigns via online crowdfunding sites, as well as charities like DonorsChoose, as a method of receiving funding for their classrooms. The funds received generally go towards school supplies ranging from laptops and classroom equipment, to cleaning supplies, all of which are sometimes tough to attain due to tight classroom budgets. DonorsChoose has had over 50,000 campaigns during the latest back to school season, all of which are funding campaigns for school projects.

Online fundraising has gained extreme popularity over recent years, and there are only expectations for additional growth. If you would like to donate to DonorsChoose or any other 3 or 4-star youth education program and service charities, it is as simple as clicking their page link below and donating through our Giving Basket.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
