Best websites for helping schools

These sites will direct you to underserved and underfunded schools and classrooms.

Donorschoose.org lets public schoolteachers nationwide post information about classroom projects that need funding. “Requests range from finger paints for autistic students to netbooks so a chemistry class can access the Internet.” If you donate money, you’ll receive photos of projects being carried out, a cost report, and thanks.

Adoptaclassroom.org provides criteria for selecting an underserved classroom. Donors get an expense report, thank-you packages, and students’ artwork. “You can also support the students directly by visiting the classroom or chaperoning field trips.”

Wegivebooks.com provides children’s books to literacy organizations while enlisting adults to read with youngsters. Participants choose a title to read online with a child, and a physical copy of the book is donated to the chosen organization.
