Sometimes, all it takes is a bit of green to improve a school’s educational prospects. DonorsChoose.org is a site that connects people with educational causes that need their goodwill. Teachers from schools around the country have posted their projects students and ask for your help in reaching their goals through monetary donations. Search for projects by cause, or browse by region and support your own community’s schools. Once you have donated, track the progress of the project through the site, and receive letters from the students you have helped.
