At DonorsChoose, US public school teachers across the country request resources to help their students learn, and donors and partners give to the projects that inspire them. As the most trusted crowdfunding platform for teachers, donors, and district administrators alike, DonorsChoose vets each request, ships the funded resources directly to the teacher, and provides thank-yous and reporting to donors and school leaders.
Every day, district administrators work hard behind the scenes to help bring learning to life. Our Advocacy and Public Partnerships team works closely with these administrators to help them reach their goals for teachers and students alike. Beyond partnering with education associations like AASA, NSBA, and CoSN, we also partner with 100+ school districts through our free District Partnership Program.
We team up with districts to do even more
The District Partnership Program is designed for district leaders who want to leverage DonorsChoose as an intentional part of their fundraising program. Since the launch last fall, DPP districts have received nearly $37 million in donations to project requests, reaching over 6 million students.
Innovative districts of all sizes have joined the program, from Howard-Suamico School District serving 6,103 students, to our most recent 100th member NYCDOE, the nation’s largest public school district serving more than 1 million students. Many administrators encourage teachers to request resources through DonorsChoose in line with district-wide initiatives, like 1:1 technology or college readiness.
This free program provides the following benefits to district leaders:
- A customized fundraising landing page
- Central office reporting
- First notification of funding opportunities
- Annual report for district leaders
- and more!
In total, more than 6.1 million of the students we reach benefit from this enhanced support through our District Partnership Program. Learn more about how we partner with public school districts across the country.
