Kudos to our buddies at DonorsChoose

Posted by Donna Callejon on November 19th, 2007

Last week our good friends at DonorsChoose announced what we knew had been coming for a while – their nation-wide expansion.

Here’s one for the good guys!  DonorsChoose, led by an amazing school teacher-turned-social entrepreneur, Charles Best (see pic below), has successfully facilitated about $15 million to classrooms in several regions of the US over the past five years.  Having received expansion capital in the form of grants from our common supporter, the Omidyar Network, and others, DC is off and running to reach every public school classroom teacher who needs a little extra support to offer innovative and engaging programs.

If education is your passion, check them out.  And BEST of luck to the DonorsChoose team.
