DonorsChoose.org, an online charity, matches classroom needs with anonymous benefactors. Most of the classrooms are in low-income communities. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class. Since the program’s inception in 2003, more than $73,492,429 has been raised, over 4,438,460 students have been helped and more than 178,833 projects have been brought to life. Your classroom could be next!
