Have met wonderful people and been inspired by WoWE. Very important to providing a positive voice for women in a male dominated industry!

Review for Donorschoose Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I wish they would allow me, as a donor, to give directly to the teacher if I trust the person to use it effectively rather than go through their much more expensive vendor system. It is not respectful to force the teacher to ask for so much more money than she needs. I think more and more will start using kickstarter or similar websites instead because of this...

Review for Donorschoose Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The optional 15% donation is not really optional. All the projects I have donated to, have chosen not to give the extra 15% because DC already takes a "Fulfillment Labor & Materials" fee for each project. What happens? The project is kept open requesting funds until someone else gives the supposedly "optional" donation I decided not to give. Highly misleading to all involved, bordering on a scam. For this reason alone I will not be donating anything further.

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

the teachers reports

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

if someone chooses not to give the 15% extra, respect that and record it transparently in the project totals and reduce the final line accordingly.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Stay away. The admin is misleading, even though the teachers and projects are usually wonderful.
