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.
We started years before crowdfunding was a word. To date, more than 2 million people and partners have donated $534 million to projects requesting books, field trips, technology, and other resources for more than 22 million students, overwhelmingly in low-income communities. Our dedicated team and the culture we’ve built together have made it all possible.
As the Finance Associate, you will play a critical role on our (fun!) five-person Finance Team. The team is responsible for financial accounting and revenue tracking of over $110M in annual donations. With a focus on productivity gains, continuous improvement, and scalable technology, we serve internal and external customers alike: budgeting, expense reporting, invoicing, payroll, and more.
