DonorsChoose.org engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable, and personal way to address educational inequity. In this clip, board member Stephen Colbert tells our story.
We started years before crowdfunding was a word. To date, more than 2.6 million people and partners have donated $532 million to projects requesting books, field trips, technology, and other resources for more than 22 million students, overwhelmingly in low-income communities.
