PHILANTHROPY: A Reverse DonorsChoose
Not seeing anything you like on Donorschoose.org? Want to create your own fabulous unit about, say, drums and unicorns? (Dibs!) Click on over to the Generation Project and you can design and fund an activity for teachers to choose as they see fit. It’s like DonorsChoose in reverse: the donors do the designing, teachers do the picking. It’s the brainchild of Michigan-based Jessica Rauch, a TFA alum and staffer who was kind enough to come up and say hi to me (by mistake) at the NSVF event in Pasadena. No idea if it’s a good idea or not, or well-executed, but I’m always ready for new ideas on the micro-donations front.
