Coronavirus Relief Fund

About This Fund

When coronavirus closed schools across the country, teachers needed to get supplies in the hands of students at home to keep them learning, especially in our country’s highest-need communities.

You can continue to help teachers working to help their students learn from home by choosing a distance learning project.

About The Host Organization

In 2000, Charles Best, a teacher at a Bronx public high school, wanted his students to read Little House on the Prairie. As he was making photocopies of the one book he could procure, Charles thought about all the money he and his colleagues were spending on books, art supplies, and other materials. And he figured there were people out there who'd want to help — if they could see where their money was going. Charles sketched out a website where teachers could post classroom project requests, and donors could choose the ones they wanted to support. His colleagues posted the first 11 requests. Then it spread. Today, we're open to every public school in America.
