Which teachers can use this site?

DonorsChoose.org is excited to support public school teachers across the country!

Here’s the scoop: You are eligible to register if you’re an educator at a United States public or public charter school, employed full-time by the school or district, and you work directly with students at least 75% of the time. If your project is fully funded, you’ll work with your students to complete a Thank-You Package.

If you fit this criteria, what are you waiting for? We know you’ve got tons of ideas that will help your students, so register for an account on DonorsChoose.org!

We know that educators teach in a ton of different ways, and not everyone spends all day in one classroom. We’ve got awesome projects posted by librarians, guidance counselors, school nurses, and full-time teachers who are also coaches. As long as you meet the criteria above, you’re good to go!

We can't accept registration from principals, administrators, PTA members, teachers' assistants, paraprofessionals, student teachers, substitutes, part-time teachers, after-school teachers, or staff developers. Educators at non-profit, private, or parochial schools are not eligible, even if the private program partners or contracts with a local school district.
