The Wayne Township Education Foundation partners each year with DonorsChoose.Org. Through DonorsChoose.Org, it's the Foundation's intent to double our impact by doubling the number of grants $400 or less that are funded each year. DonorsChoose.Org uses the power of individual donors, as well as corporate partners to fund individual teacher requests. Teachers submit a request for specific materials online. Donors from across the country browse the website and fund the projects they find most compelling. Most projects $400 or less are funded within 2 months. The grant-writing process is very simple, plus it's online so you can do it anywhere, anytime.
Many teachers throughout the district use DonorsChoose.Org already. For all Wayne Township online requests up to $400, the Wayne Township Education Foundation will automatically fund half of these. DonorsChoose.Org offers excellent teacher support, as well as wonderful tutorials and grant-writing incentives. And, for teachers wary of an electronic process, the Foundation will be happy to help or find you help. We want to ensure that, regardless of your technical abilities, all teachers who have a great idea have the opportunity to submit.
