From site: is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit web site, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom we call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund.

Since inception, DonorsChoose has raised more than $500 million for 73,000 schools and 900,000 projects. The average wait time to fully fund a project is about a month.
