DonorsChoose.org + CoSN Toolkit

Powerful crowdfunding platforms can raise millions of dollars worth of technology each year for classrooms across the country. However, DonorsChoose.org is uniquely positioned to support PreK-12 public schools and be the one safe option for districts. After interviews and feedback from CTOs, CIOs, and district technology leaders, DonorsChoose.org created accountability features such as technology guidelines to ensure compatibility.
 
CoSN is the top professional association for PreK-12 school system technology leaders and provides thought leadership resources, community, best practices, and advocacy tools to help leaders succeed in the digital transformation. With $284 million raised specifically for technology resources, DonorsChoose.org is a powerful force for promoting digital equity across the country, which aligns with CoSN’s mission.
