Make a wish... and it just may come true!

Teachers Ask. You Choose. Students Learn.  These are the steps to take when visiting DonorsChoose.org, the place where wishes come true for educators and students.  DonorsChoose is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit web site, educators submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, called Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund.
