Charles Best founded the charity
In 2000, Charles Best, a high school history teacher designed a website where teachers could post classroom project requests. Donors could then choose the ones they wanted to support and see exactly where their money was going. That website became Donors Choose.
The cost of operational expenses
Donors find a project that inspires them, donate what they can, and when the project is fully funded, Donors Choose purchases the requested supplies and ships them to the classroom. To date, the foundation has vetted and fulfilled requests for over 600,000 classroom projects.
