A Public Service Annoucement

Very exciting!! Pass the news along to any New Orleans public school teachers you know.

Or, check out the projects and find something to fund. Your money will go twice as far!

DonorsChoose currently has a Double Your Impact grant for proposals from teachers at New Orleans public elementary schools (K-8). This means that if your project costs $300, when someone donates $150, the project is completely funded because of the matching grant. Five proposals have already been funded through the DYI grant.

High school DonorsChoose projects may be eligible for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation DYI, if the resources you request will help prepare your students for college.

According to the DonorsChoose web site, 80% of all projects under $400 have been funded. Since 2000, donors have contributed over $30,000,000.
