Announcing a new type of school on DonorsChoose.org: Schools Serving Military Communities

We recently released a new category to highlight public schools that are on military bases, schools that report to the Department of Defense, and schools in districts where 20% or more of the student population have parents serving in the military (as reported by the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools).  We’re excited to be able to support these schools in a new way by enabling our donors to identify and support classroom project requests from schools serving military communities.  Here are the most urgent classroom projects from schools serving military communities. Beginning Veterans Day 2017, each of these classroom projects is eligible for 1:1 matched donations from Craig Newmark Philanthropies.

Donors can now find these schools easily though our “Find a classroom to support” search feature, by clicking the checkbox that says “Serving military families” under School Type.  Here’s a quick snapshot of where you can click:
