3. The Choice Is Yours
Public schools are often under-funded and can't afford to equip teachers with the tools necessary for unique lessons and experiments. That's where Donors Choose steps in--the organization hooks up teachers with great ideas and donors interested in supporting children's education. Teachers post project proposals and other needs on the Donors Choose website, where donors can sign up to give students anything from calculators to classroom carpeting to rocks and fossils for geology lessons. How You Can Help: Browse the Donors Choose website for a project that appeals to you, or choose the Quick Donation option and let the organization place your gift.
