The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, along with other organizations, donates to DonorsChoose.org to support teachers from math and science to the humanities with resources for their specific ideas. In the June issue of Vanity Fair magazine, Melinda Gates writes her first Spotlight on this organization that provides support and supplies to American schools, saying it’s “such a smart, simple concept. Every student deserves a great education, and DonorsChoose helps teachers deliver on that promise.’
DonorsChoose.org lets you share the needs of your classroom with a generous community eager to help. According to the site, supporters have brought teachers’ ideas to life in more than half of all U.S. public schools. The site provides information about how DonorsChoose works and how teachers can get started, asking “What change do you want in your classroom?”
