Our community’s fight to keep kids learning during COVID-19

The nation’s most vulnerable students also face the greatest obstacles to learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As teachers adapt to an unusual school year, here’s how we’re innovating to serve their needs.

Rising to the Challenge

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve made it easier and safer for our donors and partners to support teachers.

Flexible Shipping

Teachers can now ship many of their funded materials to their schools or homes — wherever they may be teaching.

Even More Transparency

We’ve added additional security tools to help verify teachers and notify administrators when projects are funded, so our donors have peace of mind when they give to a project.

Information on Global Supply Shortages

Our Global Inventory Hub helps teachers stay in the know about what popular items are in short supply worldwide, and our team is ready to help teachers find alternate supplies if needed.

Virtual Thank You Options

We’ve made it easier for teachers to share thanks with donors at a time when it’s often impossible to send handwritten notes from students.

“This support means the world to me. The pandemic has changed a lot of the routines our students are accustomed to, and being able to share materials with your lab partner is one of them. Because of DonorsChoose, my students are able to keep each other safe, and properly social distance themselves while completing science labs.”

Mrs. Rodriguez, a teacher from Houston, Texas

What Teachers Need

When the school year began, we asked 1,000 teachers about their plans for adapting to schooling during the pandemic. A majority of teachers are spending some or all of their time teaching remotely, and most expect their schools to go fully remote at some point this year.

where teachers will be teaching

Books, basic supplies, and technology continue to be urgent needs for teachers, whether they’re remote or in the classroom.
