Join us on Saturday, March 8th, when our special guests will be Laura Candler and Francie Kugelman on the topic of "DonorsChoose: Tips for Success". If you have important learning projects, tools, books or even technology hardware/software you need for your classrooms and can't find funding to purchase them, this is a show you won't want to miss. Laura and Francie will be sharing how to use DonorsChoose.org to obtain funding for your classroom projects.
DonorsChoose is program available to all public school teachers in the United States, but using it effectively takes some know-how. Francie has had over 100 projects funded totaling $65,000, and she'll share her secrets of success! They created the "Caring Classrooms Giving Page" to support teachers, and Laura will explain how becoming a part of that community may be able to help you obtain funding for your projects.
