I found a site called donorschoose.org. The site allows you to look at projects that teachers are trying to do in their classroom, books they need, supplies, etc. that donors can help support. It allows you to choose how much you would like to donate, and tells you the type of poverty level the school deals with. The other part that I thought was really cool was that the site gives you the option of donating an extra 15% on top of your donation to the teacher in order to help support the site, but does not make it manditory. I have always donated that extra percent because it usually works out to be a few extra cents or a dollar at most if I'm donating a smaller amount. I would suggest checking it out because I think it's a worthy cause with so many of our education systems having their funding cut.
