DonorsChoose District Controls

We're here to set your district up for success on DonorsChoose. Take the steps below to access controls for your district leaders and get resources to help your teachers make the most out of their classroom projects.

Model Crowdfunding Policy

This model crowdfunding policy ensures that your teachers only use platforms that align with district guidelines and meet industry standards for transparency, integrity, and student safety. It is built off of recommendations from district administrators, state auditors, and our partners at AASA and NSBA.

Custom District Reporting

We want to ensure that you're always aware of your teachers' DonorsChoose activity. Sign up here for free, periodic reporting on all the projects posted or funded in your district, including line-item breakdowns of every item delivered to your schools.

District Technology Guidelines

Share your district's technology policy so we can help teachers request compatible items. Whenever teachers in your district request devices like computers or tablets, we will display your district's guidelines and can link to your full IT policy.

Principal Notifications

We want to keep your principals in the loop when projects are fully funded and materials are shipped to their schools. Please attach a current contact list of the principals in your district with the following information: School Name, Principal Name, and Email Address.

Working with Your Teachers

Collaborating with teachers on their DonorsChoose projects not only helps them feel supported, but also gives you the chance to encourage teachers to create projects in line with your district priorities. These resources will help you do just that.
