Don’t let learning be impeded by a simple lack of supplies. Donors Choose is a website where teachers can post what they most need in their classrooms--and you get to choose which project to support. Your family can select a project by location, category, grade or the school’s poverty level. Then donate to help a teacher’s wish come true.

Talk to your child:

  • Which type of project or grade level are you most interested in supporting? Why?
  • Why do you think a quality education is so important?
