DonorsChoose.org

Posted: February 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

Have you heard of this website?  Neither had I until last week.  One of our teachers, Kelly Garant was telling me about a project she was working on to bring an author in to speak to students at Flint Lake.  She listed this project on this website and donors (from all over!) can choose to give money to this project or any other project about which they are passionate.  Kelly already completed a project for her Science Bowl team (which placed first in Indiana in their division) and received funding through this website.

As I looked further into this website, I noticed that there are several Valparaiso teachers using it to give an opportunity to support the great things they are doing in their classrooms.  All of them had someone give money to their projects.

One disclaimer–it is a slipper slope once you start looking–lots of people are doing lots of neat things–and it’s hard when you want to support lots of great projects!  I commend these teachers for creative projects and creative thinking that allows passionate people with financial resources to support them!
