Celebrating the most innovative teachers on February 28!

Fast Company just named DonorsChoose.org one of 2019’s Most Innovative Companies — so we’re celebrating the world’s most innovative teachers!

Teacher demographic information

DonorsChoose.org is committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom. To further our goal of enhancing equity in education, we’ve enabled teachers to voluntarily submit their race and gender on DonorsChoose.org.

Why are you collecting teacher demographic data?

We’re collecting teacher demographic information in order to further our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at DonorsChoose.org, and the classrooms we serve. Research has shown a link between teacher diversity and student educational outcomes. Specifically, collecting teacher race data on a per-teacher level is one additional way we contribute to the conversation around educational inequity, while supporting teachers of color (and other groups within our teacher base) through funding opportunities.

How will you be using this data?

Demographic information will be used to find ways to better serve our diverse teachers and students, and to address educational inequity that may arise from demographic indicators such as race and gender.

Will this data be publically accessible?

While demographic information that you choose to share can be used with relevant funding opportunities, it will not be shared publicly on our site. See our privacy policy for more details.
