DonorsChoose is a non-profit organization that has worked closely with the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National School Boards Association, the American School Superintendents Association, and many school districts across the country to provide philanthropic funding for classroom resources. DonorsChoose has already supported teachers and schools in Mississippi, as noted in the attachment.
School districts may want to consider adoption of a local board policy to support activities funding through DonorsChoose. Donors Choose has a model crowdfunding policy, and the Mississippi School Boards Association also has a model policy.
District leaders can join the free District Partnership Program.
