DonorsChoose is dedicated to addressing the scarcity and inequitable distribution of learning materials and experiences in our public schools. We focus on providing an outlet of change in the following areas: 1. Shortages of learning materials prevent thorough, engaging instruction; 2. Top-down distribution of materials stifles our best teachers and discourages them from developing targeted solutions for their students; and 3. Small, directed contributions have gone un-tapped as a source of funding.DonorsChoose will improve public education by engaging citizens in an online marketplace where teachers describe and individuals can fund specific student projects. We envision a nation where students in every community have the resources they need to learn.

If you want to help their CEO's pad their pockets with their six figure salaries and if you want to help the art supply companies who also help to pad the Donorschoose CEO's pockets and have actual donors pay up to 300% mark up to get materials then do it. I will look elsewhere for honest non-profits.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Investigating the policies and procedures of the operations of this company.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep the prices of materials low, spread the wealth to the people who need the materials not to the fat cat CEO's of Donorschoose. Let donors know that they are paying top dollar for materials and padding the pockets of not only the CEO's but the art supply companies.
