Targeted, Hyperlocal Giving
Teachers identify exactly what their students need, so you can directly support the schools, communities, and subject areas you care about most.
Vivid, Data-Rich Feedback
We'll provide you with classroom photos, thank you letters, and data on every classroom project you supported so you and your customers, board members, and employees can see exactly where your dollars went. You'll receive impact analysis by geography, grade level, economic level, and more.
Custom, Branded Partnerships
For those who want to create a custom-branded giving experience for their customers, you can plug into our API, giving your customers the option to donate to DonorsChoose without ever leaving your website. Learn more about our API on our developers page.
Trust & Integrity
As a 501(c)3 public charity, we've been awarded the top 4-star rating from charity watchdog Charity Navigator for 13 years in a row, an honor achieved by less than 1% of all charities reviewed. We vet every classroom project before it's posted, and have materials shipped directly to the classroom (rather than giving cash), to achieve the highest standard of accountability and transparency.
Our efficiency and transparency have earned us top ratings from charity watchdogs.
