    DonorsChoose.org makes it easy to help classrooms in need. Public school teachers post classroom project requests which range from pencils for poetry to microscopes for mitochondria. I have had over 60 grants funded through the DonorsChoose website. I have had local, state, national, and even international good samaritans to donate to various projects over the years. If you're serious about teaching but need funds to provide essential resources, then this site is for you!

    This site, The NEA Foundation, provides grants to teachers in the areas of student achievement and learning and leadership. These grants are awarded ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.
  • Shelina Warren says:
    Grants are available for up to $500! Classroom  grants can be used for a  variety of projects and materials, including  but not limited to books,  software, calculators, math manipulatives, art supplies, audio-visual equipment, and lab materials. Funds must be used within one year of the application deadline.

    This site is very similar to DonorsChoose.org as it partners with donors to get you much needed classroom resources. However, 100% of your donor contributions go directly to your classroom, fueling the aspirations of all your students.
