DonorsChoose.org Projects

  • The district’s only approved crowdfunding platform is easy to use and an excellent resource to help fund classroom projects.

    Since the district began partnering with DonorsChoose in 2005, GCS teachers have received more than $1.75 million to fund projects in their classrooms. 

    Do you have a classroom project you’ve been dreaming of doing with your students? You can learn more about DonorsChoose here: https://www.donorschoose.org/teachers. Need help getting started? Contact Lane Harvey Brown, director of grants acquisition, at brownl8@gcsnc.com.

    Please also review the Project Technology Guidelines, included in the site links on the Grants Acquisition homepage. 

    Teachers seeking to use DonorsChoose.org must complete the brief Grants and DonorsChoose Project Approval and Outcome forms (found under Site Shortcuts on the Grants Acquisition homepage).
