The goal of Digital Wish is to help schools gain technology access across all subject areas. To do this, schools and classrooms identify their needed technology, from what is listed on the site, to start a fundraiser. The community donates to the fundraiser. At the end of the fundraiser, the school uses the deposited funds to purchase items in the online shop.
The site includes a library of grants and fundraising ideas to help schools marshal community support. Educators must describe how each resource will be used, write project plans, and tell the story of their classroom. Their classroom stories are then posted online, for review by any donor.
Another section of the site lists current Grant Competitions for a variety of technology products. And yet another section of the site is devoted to a free lesson plan database.
