DonorsChoose.org engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable, and personal way to address educational inequity. In this clip, board member Stephen Colbert tells the organization's story.
Since its launch in 2000, more than 3 million "citizen philanthropists" have donated to classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org, channeling books, field trips, technology, and other resources to more than 28 million students in public schools, overwhelmingly from low-income households. Along the way, the organization helped to pioneer the field of crowdfunding and is now making an impact beyond school supplies.
Thanks to its dedicated team and culture, DonorsChoose.org earned recognition as the #1 "Best Nonprofit to Work For" by the Nonprofit Times.
Teachers at three-quarters of all the public schools in the U.S. have created classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. The Advocacy and Public Partnerships Team works to establish deep and mutually beneficial relationships with school districts across the country, ensuring district administrators have the information they need to help teachers in their district secure classroom resources through DonorsChoose.org.
