What Can I Request?At DonorsChoose.org, you can request student-centered materials you need to support instruction in your classroom. To do this, you will shop online at one of our 26 vendors' websites to choose materials for your classroom project.
DonorsChoose.org uses a point system, and as you earn more points, you are able to request a wider range of resources. As a new DonorsChoose.org teacher, you start with 3 points in your account, which means you can submit up to three projects at once.
|When you request...||...you use|
|- Materials for $400 or less||1 point|
|- Materials for $401 to $800||2 points|
|- Materials for more than $801||4 points|
|- Class Visitor||6 points|
|- Class Trip||6 points|
|- Special Request (any materials not offered by our vendors)||6 points|
|When your project is funded...||...you earn|
|- You confirm you still want the materials within 6 days.||1 point|
|- You return a thank-you package that is complete and compelling.||1 point|
|- You return your thank-you package on or before its due date.||1 point||Note: For each above action you fail to complete, you will lose 1 point, so be sure to check your email and create a great thank-you package!|
