DonorsChoose.org engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable, and personal way to address educational inequity. In this clip, board member Stephen Colbert tells our story.
To date, we have partnered with hundreds of companies and over 2 million everyday people to bring over $519M in books, field trips, technology, and other resources to more than 22 million students overwhelmingly from low-income communities. Our dedicated team and the informal, fast-paced, and fun culture we’ve built together is what has made this success possible.
About the Marketing & Partnerships Team
Our team raises funds for teachers and students by designing and executing philanthropic partnerships with corporations and foundations including Chevron, DICK’S Sporting Goods, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, SONIC Drive-In, and Staples. (Check out our partnership options and case studies.) This year, we aim to raise $55M for public school classrooms through creative, collaborative partnerships with our institutional donors.
We work closely with our colleagues across the organization to provide exceptional project management, customer service, and reporting to our partners with the goals of maximizing impact for students and teachers, driving meaningful business outcomes for our partners, and growing support for classrooms over time.
