Teachers can get free money for their projects

Many teachers have found that they need to pay for some things out of their own pockets. Many times these are for extra, curriculum enriching projects that enhance the learning process. Many districts just cannot find extra money, so any alternative that teachers have for funding is great.

Teachers can put a project online and request the funds at DonorsChoose.org.

DonorsChoose.org is a charity that funds education projects. Teachers post their projects, and others choose to pay for it. Potential donors go to the website and look for projects they would like to fund. Other funds match it from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Here are a few tips for teachers to post projects. Do a quick search to see how a proposal should be written. It should fully explain all you want and need, as well as what you will do with it and how it will help your students. Give your proposal a title that will stand out. Ask funds for projects that can be reusable. Keep your initial proposals low, $200 to $400. Be patient. If you need something in the Fall, request it in June or July.

If you are a teacher who does have extra cash, perhaps you can even scan the site, DonorsChoose.org for small projects you can fund and help out a fellow teacher. Many projects are $50 or less.
