Inspire donors. Protect your students.
Choose an inspiring and safe photo to display on all of your projects. This photo will appear alongside your school name and location. These photos are displayed to all visitors to our sites, and classroom photos will appear beside the project when the project is shared using social media sharing tools.
We require that you obtain prior, written permission from the parent or legal guardian of each student for any photos that include images of students, and present those permission slips to DonorsChoose upon request at any time.
