Which teachers and schools 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 a full-time educator employed at a United States public school, charter school, or Head Start center. You must work directly with students at least 75% of the time.

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.
