The platform allows donors to choose the classroom and project that they would like to fund. From literacy and music programs, all the way down to “we need more pencils.” Donors can contribute any amount they want to support these classroom projects.
Prospective donors can sort by the urgency, geographic location, academic subject or even the poverty level of the school program they would like to support.
If a program is not fully funded by the date the funding is needed, the money is returned to the donor, who can reinvest it in another project.
