Donors Choose and You!
Donors Choose can be a great way to obtain some supplies that would otherwise be difficult to get through school funds, such as expensive technology equipment . The most daunting part of grant writing can be understanding the process. This page will hopefully get you started.
The way it works is that Donors Choose.org provides a medium for teachers to propose projects and for donors to find and fund worthy proposals. Parents, companies, education foundations, and any individual can fund a classroom project by donating through Donors Choose. Each donation source can select from projects posted to the website. They can search by area, socio-economic status, by district, or even a specific school.
Our Canyons Education Foundation has asked that proposals that are for materials less than $1,000 in value should be submitted through Donors Choose.
