New Program for Crowdfunding Teacher Needs


Teachers, prepare yourselves – a new program started by website TeacherFunder.com is giving Donors Choose a run for their money…but to your benefit!

TeacherFunder allows teacher participants to apply for funding from generous donors. Similar to the Donors Choose model, TeacherFunder collects 3.9% + $1 from each donation, with the remaining funds going to the teacher.

Unlike Donors Choose, though, TeacherFunder acts more as a payment service and enables teachers to have quick access to the funds donated to them – with fewer hoops to jump through so that donations are in teachers hands sooner. That means money for supplies, field trips, books and other expenses (say, like EdTech subscriptions) a lot sooner!

To get started, visit TeacherFunder.com to register and get to work on that classroom donation hustle!
